The bulk of the correspondence is that of Julian and his wife, Laura Giddings Julian, and with his children, Grace and Paul, while he was serving in Congress, working as an attorney in Washington, D.C., and on speaking tours.

1 edition published in 1878 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In 1872 William Bowen, "a colored man", proposed to fill below grade lots in the District of Columbia at his own expense, expecting to receive compensation in the form of tax liens on the improved property. The District's Board of Health accepted the proposal and the work was completed. The property owner appealed the taxes and won. Mr. Bowen appealed to Congress for relief in 1875; he was awarded less than his original claim. Then his property was seized to pay the subcontractors, and Mr. Bowen now seeks further payment. The Committee decided he had been adequately paid and postponed the bill indefinitely
