This letter, written by Leigh R. Webber from Lexington, Missouri, was addressed to Mrs. Brown, wife of John Stillman Brown, a Unitarian minister who lived west of Lawrence. Webber described the weather and life in Lexington, as well as future plans for the regiment to march to Kansas City, Missouri. He asked Mrs. Brown to send him clothing. Webber spent much of the letter describing the unruly behavior of his fellow soldiers.
