John Brown to Colonel Hugh Forbes, June 22, 1857

22d of June, 1857
[Colonel H. Forbes, New York City, New York.]

sir, — If you have drawn on W. H. D. Callender, Esq., cashier at Hartford, Conn., for six hundred dollars, or any part of that amount, and are not prepared to come on and join me at once, you will please pay over to Joseph Bryant. Esq., who is my agent, six hundred dollars, or whatever amount you have so drawn.


I did not present this to the colonel, as I presumed it would be of no use; and then he is, I am persuaded, acting on good faith.

Joseph Bryant.
