  Letter, Orville C. Brown to My dear Sir
Author: No authors specified.
Date: June 24, 1856

This letter, presumably written by Orville Chester Brown, is an excellent example of a free state perspective on the events of 1856 in Kansas Territory. Speaking in rather eloquent terms, the author expresses anger at the United States government for their refusal to aid free state settlers.
