Letter from William Clark to Jonathan Clark, 31 January 1811

Clark writes his brother Jonathan from St. Louis reporting on a duel in which he acted as a second. Lieutenant John Campbell unfairly is in jail due to his role in the affair--although not one of the duelists-- and wishes Jonathan was there to give him advice.
