Item Description
  Letter, C. [Charles] Robinson to Capt. [John] Brown
Author: Robinson, Charles
Date: September 13, 1856

Charles Robinson wrote to John Brown from Lawrence on September 13, 1856, a short note encouraging Brown to give Governor Geary, who "talks of letting the past be forgotten," a chance and to come to town to "see us." A note from John Brown, Jr., on the bottom of the page, however, advised caution, as he had "no doubt an attempt will be made to arrest you as well as Lane."
