|Letters from Aaron D. Stevens to his brother and sisters
|Aaron D. Stevens to his sister on arguments over slavery and abolition in Kansas
|29 April 1857
|Stevens, Aaron D. (1831-1860)
|Hopes his sister and brother are not "old liners," i.e. that they support his anti-slavery efforts in the "Kansas War." Mentions "Miss Brown" (likely a daughter of John Brown) in reference to his wish that more "yankey" girls would come to Kansas so he could find a wife.
