Item Description
  Letter, S. [Samuel] L. Adair to Mr. J. B. [John Brown]
Author: Adair, Samuel Lyle
Date: October 2, 1857

Samuel Adair wrote his brother-in-law John Brown from Osawatomie on October 2, 1857, to explain why he could not come see Brown in Iowa. Much of letter describes the general poor state of health in his locale, but he also comments on the political and especially the prospects for free state success in the upcoming election--Adair was not optimistic.
