Item Description
  Letter, E. B. Whitman to Dear Sir [Samuel Adair, presumably]
Author: Whitman, E. B.
Date: October 5, 1857

Whitman wrote from Lawrence, presumably, to Samuel Adair to ask for his assistance in distributing remaining clothing before winter. He included instructions for notifying the public of the availability of relief goods and indicated that the first priority for receiving materials is for who Adair "knows to be in absolute want." Whitman felt the task of distribution should not take more than one week. He also wanted Adair to estimate the number of poor families in his community.
