Letter from “J. B.,” July 12, 1857

Washington, D. C., July 12, 1857.

DEAR SIR:— Some of our citizens, I am told, lately left here for Philadelphia, three of whom were arrested and brought back.

I beg you will inform me whether two others — (I, whose wife is in Philadelphia, was one of them), ever reached your city. To-morrow morning

Mrs. Weems, with her baby, will start for Philadelphia and see you probably over night.

Yours Truly,
J. B.
