Item Description
  Letter, Amos A. Lawrence to Mr. Jas B. Abbott
Author: Lawrence, Amos Adams
Date: August 20, 1855

Amos A. Lawrence wrote from Boston to James Abbott in Hartford, Connecticut, referring to a recent shipment of carbine rifles he had sent, which was "far from being enough." Lawrence advised Abbott to take good care of them, as they might be used as reimbursement to those investors who had subscribed money to the free state cause once "it is settled that Kanzas shall not be a province of Missouri."
