Frederick Law Olmstead, a free state fundraiser and landscape architect who would later design New York City's Central Park, wrote from New York to James Abbott, reporting of his own recent fundraising efforts. Within a week, he hoped to raise enough money to purchase
"100 _____", believing it wise not to mention in writing that the objects purchased would be weapons to equip free state militias.
