  Letter, John Brown to Dear Wife [Mary Brown] & Children every one
Author: Brown, John , 1800-1859
Date: November 2, 1855

In this letter from "Brownsville, Kansas Territory," John Brown made some observations about the harshness of the weather, the health of his Kansas children, their general lack of preparedness for the winter, and the farm work that needed to be accomplished. His only comment about the political situation in the territory came in closing: "I feel more, & more confident that Slavery will soon die out here; & to God be the praise."
