Item Description
  Letter, James Gillpatrick to Gen. [Samuel C.] Pomeroy
Author: Gillpatrick, James
Date: October 24, 1856

From Brownville, K.T., Gillpatrick wrote seeking compensation for his losses to the "border ruffins," or specifically at the hand of "a miserable horse thief from Missouri." Gillpatrick had been advised by a Chicago friend that all such aid was being distributed through the Lawrence based committee, thus his letter to Pomeroy, who would "doubtless know who they are."
