Item Description
  Letter, T. [Thomas] J. Marsh to George L. Stearns, Esq.
Author: Marsh, Thomas J.
Date: August 20, 1857

In his August 20, 1857, report to Stearns, Marsh again asked for some clarification on a couple payment issues and described his role for the committee (Mass. State Kansas Committee) with regard to Jim Lane's efforts to organize protection for free state voters. For a short while, things looked good for the Free State cause, but Governor Walker's conduct to date had been disruptive and Judge Cato and friends began to issue arrest warrants.
