Item Description
  Letter, E. Nute to F. B. Sanborn Esq.
Author: Nute, Ephraim
Date: March 22, 1859

Ephraim Nute's efforts on behalf of "4 more fugitives," including Charley Fisher of Leavenworth, and the activities of "manhunters" in and around Lawrence are the main focus of this letter to F. B. Sanborn, but Nute also mentions the continuing need for money to pay for Doy's defense. The trial was to begin at St. Joseph the next day.
