This letter, written by O. H. Browne from Ridgeway, Shawnee County, Kansas Territory, is a call to action. Browne was convinced that he and Halderman and others were being "swindled" out of their shares in the Lecompton Town Company, and that "little Bob [Robert] Stevens, law partner of Gov. Shannon, is the mischief making monkey that has caused all this difficulty." Although Halderman is apparently inclined to let this matter go, Browne wants to file a law suit, and if that doesn't work he is "ready to join any company that may be organized and deal out justice to the Lecompton Town Company according to the rules of equity as recognized and administered by Judge Lynch."
