Sene Campbell, writing from Fort Scott, Kansas Territory, to Captain James Montgomery, expresses her anger at Montgomery for his role in the killing of her fiance, John Little. Little was killed on December 16, 1858, at Fort Scott by a group of free state supporters led by Montgomery, who had entered the town to free Benjamin Rice, a free state advocate being held prisoner there. This is an unusual letter from a female threatening violence in response to the death of husband-to-be.
