Title: Letter, Jas Finley to Dear Sister
Description: James A. Finley, a Lawrence resident at the time of the Sack of Lawrence, wrote to his sister recounting the events that had transpired only three days before.

Finley, a more fortunate man than many in Lawrence that day, claimed to have suffered no losses in the incident.
