While in Boston, Massachusetts, Franklin B. Sanborn wrote this letter to Reverend Thomas W. Higginson, a Northern abolitionist and agent with the Massachusetts State Kansas Committee. The first part of the letter dealt with business, but Sanborn also mentioned a recent speech at the State House where abolitionist John Brown made an appearance. He hoped that Higginson and his friends in Worcester County, Massachusetts, would aid "the good old man."
