|Anne Brown Adams to Alexander M. Ross discussing her sadness that attempts to have his writings about John Brown published in a newspaper have failed
|2 January 1887
|Adams, Anne Brown (1843-1926)
|Ross, Alexander Milton
|Saddened that she cannot get his writings concerning John Brown published in any newspaper. Suggests she try the "Toledo Blade." Cannot believe "that people would be so united in suppressing a truth." Is upset by the publishing of so many private family letters that she sees as irrelevant. Wishes authors would instead speak to her and Solomon, since John Brown confided so closely in them. "They would not dare insult a living person in that way. Why not respect the dead?"
