Photocopies of letters written from Kansas Territory by Brown and his son, John Brown, Jr. to Orson Day of White Hall, NY. Brown, who "just returned from the Kansas War," details his concerns for the Territory and gives travel instructions to Day who apparently planned to move his family to Kansas. Also copies of various newspaper accounts (1859) of the action at Harper's Ferry; and a reprint of an anti-Brown article.
