Item Description
  Letter, A. A. Lawrence to My dear Sir [Charles Robinson]
Author: Lawrence, Amos Adams
Date: January 31, 1856

From Boston, January 31, 1856, Amos Lawrence wrote to advise his friend Charles Robinson submit to the authority of recognized officers of the U.S. government, no matter how unjust their actions appeared. He suggested that Robinson follow the "Fabian policy" of non-violent, peaceful resistance, and do what he could to discourage "all aggression" on the part of free-state men.
