Item Description
  Letter, Maurice Maitland [J. H. Kagi] to "My Dear Sister"
Author: Kagi, John Henry
Date: March 5, 1858

On his 23rd birthday, March 5, 1858, Kagi (now alias "Maurice Maitland") wrote a very circumspect letter from Springdale, Iowa, expressing his satisfaction with "the present plitical prospects"--"Every thing is working just to suit me--nothing could suit me better"--and his interest in knowing "what you have learned about J. H." (presumably, himself, J.H. Kagi).
