Gamaliel Garrison is writing to his nephew, Samuel L. Adair, from Yellow Springs, Ohio, after returning from Osawatomie, Kansas Territory. He writes of the death of his son, David Garrison, and of Frederick Brown, both killed during the Battle of Osawatomie. Garrison indicates that he had expected all his sons to settle in Kansas and that David's wife, Rachel, still speaks well of the country. He hopes that it would be possible to hold on to David's claim for his heirs. The sheet of paper also contains a letter from James Garrison. (See item #90509.)

Creator: Garrison, Gamaliel
