Item Description
  Letter, John B. Dunning to Mr. [Thomas W.] Higginson
Author: Dunning, John
Date: October 30, 1856

This letter was written by John Dunning, a member of the Massachusetts Company, to Thomas W. Higginson, a prominent Northern abolitionist and agent for the Massachusetts Kansas Aid Committee. Dunning informed Higginson that it was no longer safe for them to remain in Kansas, so they had temporarily relocated to Nebraska City, Nebraska. Furthermore, he adamantly asserted that "we want no further aid from Massachusetts through the hands of Martin Stowell." He asked that, in the future, all aid come through some other source, such as A. A. Jamerson.
