This letter, written from Ashley, Massachusetts, by William Brown, was addressed to his sister, Sarah Brown. William and Sarah were the children of John Stillman Brown, a Unitarian minister who lived west of Lawrence, Kansas. William discussed his vacation from school at Phillips Exeter Academy. He expressed his anxiety about whether or not the Lecompton Constitution had been defeated, and worried that it may have succeeded due to presidential support for slavery.
