In a brief letter from Topeka that is very difficult to decipher, Jim Lane informs Robinson, Gen. George W. Deitzler, George W. Brown, John Brown, "& others" of his arrival with "a sufficient force" to do battle for the free state cause. He seems to counsel quick and decisive action. The men to whom Lane wrote were prisoners at Lecompton, Kansas Territory. The "John Brown" mentioned in this letter was John Brown, Jr.

Creator: Lane, James Henry, 1814-1866
