It would appear that abolitionist Wendell Phillips wrote this letter to the widow of John Brown shortly after Brown's December 1859 execution to convey to her some financial support--specifically, a $200 bank draft. Phillips mentioned Annie, one of the Brown daughters, and closed with, "What ripe fruit your noble husband's devotion is producing."
