Item Description
  Letter, [Amos A. Lawrence] to My Dear Madame [ Sara T. D. Robinson]
Author: Lawrence, Amos Adams
Date: June 26, 1856

From New York, Amos Lawrence wrote that he believed "Gov. Robinson cannot be harmed by any action of law" but thought it wise for Sara Robinson to write "a letter to my mother" "to be kept in reserve." (See, doc. #101115, draft letter) Lawrence mentioned visits with Congressmen William Howard and John Sherman (Howard Commission) and testimony before a congressional committee, and seemed optimistic about the situation in Kansas. [Reprinted in Blackmar, Life of Charles Robinson, 434.]
