Battle of Hickory Point, Sept. 13, 1856
Falls city Oct Dr Sir By great sacrifices we have raised & send by Mr. Tidd $150. I trust this money will be used to get the guns to Kansas or as near as possible. If you can get them to this point we will try & get them on in some way – the probability is Kansas will never need the guns – one thing is certain - if they are to do her any good it will be in the next few days Let nothing interfere in bringing them on. Yours, J. H Lane
