    In April , Jeff conveyed his mother's request that Walt send a copy of James Redpath's biography of John Brown, the abolitionist martyr. 67 The Public Life of Captain John Brown () had been issued recently by Thayer & Eldridge, the Boston publisher with which Walt was preparing his revised edition of Leaves of Grass.

The most interesting and the most novel part of Mr. Redpath's book is the letter written by John Brown in , giving some account of his early life.
