|Collection of John Brown documents from Alexander M. Ross
|Anne Brown Adams to Alexander M. Ross about the pain of reading Richard Hinton's book, "John Brown and His Men," and her attempts to pay off debts
|9 November 1894
|Adams, Anne Brown (1843-1926)
|Ross, Alexander Milton
|Reading Richard Hinton's book "John Brown and His Men," but doing so slowly, since much of it is painful to her. Says the book should have appeal and that it has a few small mistakes "that no one except I would notice." Received a letter from her Aunt Martha, John Brown's only living sibling. Got fifty five dollars for one magazine article, but another was rejected. Her husband is ill, and she just took a mortgage on her ranch to pay debts.
