A letter written by Daniel L. Chandler from three locations (West Point, Bates County, Missouri; Mapleton, Missouri; and Kansas City, Missouri) on three separate dates, addressed to John Stillman Brown, a Unitarian minister who lived west of Lawrence. Chandler describes in detail his experiences caring for sick and wounded soldiers. He expresses great emotion at the destruction and carnage he's witnessed in Missouri. Chandler also discusses the "humanity" of the army hospital surgeons, whose greatest priority is "the health of the soldier."
