Untitled Document Lawrence July 26 1855

Mr Thayer

Dear Sir

The bearer, J. B. Abbott, is a resident of this District, on the Wakarusa about four miles from Lawrence. There is a military company formed in his neighborhood & they are anxious to procure arms – Mr Abbott is a gentleman I whom you can place implicit confidence, & is true as steel to the cause of Freedom in Kansas – In my judgment the rifles in Lawrence have had a very good effect, & I think the same kind of instruments in other places would do more to save Kansas than almost any thing else -- Any thing you can do for Mr A. will be gratefuly appreciated by the people of Kansas – We are in the midst of a revolution as you will see by the papers – How we shall come out of the furnace God only knows. That we have got to enter it, some of us, there is no doubt, but we are ready to be offered –

In haste Very Respectfuly Yours
For Freedom for a world

C. Robinson
