Item Description
  Letter, Amos A. Lawrence to My Dear Madam [Sara Robinson]
Author: Lawrence, Amos Adams
Date: October 3? 1856

Amos A. Lawrence, in Boston, wrote to Sara Robinson regarding her husband's desire to retire from the Emigrant Aid Company, advising her that he not do so until after the November presidential elections. Lawrence also suggested to her that, when writing to President Pierce, she might call him "President" and not "Mister", in order to further her cause. He admitted to Mrs. Robinson, though, that he "has no more love for him" than she does.
