Marian S. (Brown) Hand, Rawsonville, Ohio, writes her sister, Florella Brown Adair, and brother-in-law, Samuel Adair, inquiring about events in Kansas Territory and about their brother, John Brown, and his sons. She says that Kansas Aid Societies and Ladies Aid Societies were forming to help families that suffered in Kansas Territory. Her husband, T. W. Hand, adds a note to the end of the letter discussing politics. He feels that Fremont would be elected President and that would insure freedom in Kansas and the North.
