Item Description
  Letter, [John Brown, Jr.] to [John Brown]
Author: Brown, Jr., John
Date: August 14, 1856

Although this document is unsigned, it is almost certainly a letter from John Brown, Jr., to his father. The former was at a "camp" near Lecompton, still in the custody of territorial officials, and he wanted his father to come for a visit. John, Jr. provides instructions on how this might be done safely; he believed it could be, but warned, "don't let them get you."
