Item Description
  Letter, John Brown to Dear Wife [Mary Brown] & Children every one
Author: Brown, John , 1800-1859
Date: July 17, 1857

In a very brief letter to his "wife & children," John Brown wrote from Iowa, en route to Kansas, that travel was slow because of the freight they were hauling and that little news of interest was coming from Kansas." He closed: "I would give anything to know that I should be permitted to see you all again in this life. But Gods will be done. To his infinite grace I commend you all."
