Journal of Amos A. Lawrence, October 21, 1859

Cold. Henry Wilson came to see me about Brown. He thinks it will have a very bad effect on the Republican party; thinks all such attempts must fail always. Brown's conversations are all given in the newspapers by telegraph. He is a brave man, and if he is hanged he will die a martyr to his hatred of slavery.
