Item Description
  Letter, [James H.] Lane to Dr. Gaston
Author: Lane, James Henry, 1814-1866
Date: August 16, 1856

Written while Lane was somewhere in Kansas, this letter demonstrates some of the issues on Lane's mind during the conflict in Kansas. One of his main concerns was to make sure that emigrants (and weapons) had a safe route that was free from harassment by border ruffians. This is a copy of Lane's original letter.
