Item Description
  Letter, Amos A. Lawrence to Gov. [Charles] Robinson
Author: Lawrence, Amos Adams
Date: October 19, 1858

The benefactor of the city of Lawrence and much free-state activity generally, wrote Robinson from Boston, Mass., on several issues, including the establishment of a college and business/financial matters, but he made interesting reference to his (Lawrence's) own candidacy for governor on the American Party ticket. He did not expect to win, but instead proposed to simply be working to keep the "Americans" in line for a unified opposition to the Democrats in 1860.
