dc.description Letter written by John Brown from Springfield, Massachusetts, dated April 16, 1857, to his wife, Mary, and children concerning his return after hiding from "Uncle Sam's Hounds." This mention of "Uncle Sam's Hounds" is perhaps related to either the Potawatomi massacre or the defeat of pro-slavery forces and raiding on the Kansas-Missouri border. en_US
