In this report from Lawrence, Kansas Territory, Whitman complains about his money problem and writes that abolitionist John Brown would be in Lawrence for "a very important council" of the military organization. "Look for something decisive this winter and Satisfactory." He informs Stearns that he (Whitman) would take care of "J. B.'s wants" as soon as he could, but there was a limit to what he could borrow on his own account. "I am willing to work, wear out, die if need be in the cause, but I cannot send a brick always without straw."

Creator: Whitman, E. B. (Edmund Burke), 1812-1883
