In regard to the most extreme act of John Brown's Kansas career, the so-called Pottawatomie of Brown's monument at Osawatomie, he compared Brown to Jesus Christ; and that on February 5, 1878, James Hanway, I never had much doubt that Captain Brown was the author of the blow at Pottawatomieshould later have spoken of the punishment due Brown for his crimes in Kansas, --this appears to mes certainly not Brown, it may have been one of Brown's aliases.
