This letter, written by William Brown from Lawrence, Kansas, was addressed to his sister, Sarah Brown, who was away at a teaching position in Massachusetts. William began by summarizing an editorial entitled "A Military Quartette" that he said appeared in the Leavenworth Conservative newspaper the previous night. The editorial discussed the distinguished Civil War records of four partners of the Leavenworth law practice Ewing, Sherman, & McCook. William went on to discuss his position as a clerk at the state legislature and life in Topeka.
