Tabor, Fremont Co Iowa 16 Sept. ’57
Genl. J. H. Lane My Dear Sir
Your favors of the 7th inst is received. I had previously written you expressive of my strong desire to see you . I suppose you have my letter before this. As to the job of work you enquire about I suppose that three good teams with well covered waggons, & ten really ingenious industrious men (not gassy) with about $150 in cash, could bring it about in the course of eight or ten days.
Very Respectfully Your Friend
(signed) John Brown
