Copied by R. J. Hinton from his journal in preparation for one of his publications on the Bleeding Kansas, the first letter is Jim Lane's offer to rescue the Lecompton prisoners (Robinson, George W. Brown, Gaius Jenkins, et al). The second letter is Charles Robinson's reply, suggesting that in light of current congressional activity the plan was ill-advised. Both letters are dated August 11, 1856.

Creator: Lane, James Henry, 1814-1866
