Item Description
  Letter, John Brown to My Dear Wife [Mary Brown]
Author: Brown, John , 1800-1859
Date: November 16, 1859

In this letter to his wife, from the Charlestown, Virginia, jail, John Brown wrote mainly of his children--especially the daughters--and his ideas about the proper education for them, in light of the fact that some of his Eastern supporters were offering to provide assistance in this area: "You my wife perfectly well know that I have always expressed a decided preference for a very plain but perfectly practical education for both Sons & Daughters."
