Jason Brown to John Brown, Jr.

Jason Brown to John Brown, Jr.
Creator: Brown, Jason, 1823-1912
Date: January 3 and 4, 1859
A letter from Jason Brown to his brother asking to lend him some money. He offers a share of some land until he can pay it back with interest. He had borrowed from John, Jr. previously. He wants to use it to go to the Rocky Mountains to "scratch a small pile of minerals" which may mean he wants to hunt for gold. He makes references to having to leave Kansas but that it is where he would like to be. He would leave his wife and son in Ohio on their small farm there. On the last page of the letter, Jason indicates that Melchia Sherbondy has offered him some money for a share of what he might make in the mountains. His son Charley wants to go with him and Jason also wants John, Jr. to go with him to the mountains.
