Patrons of Chase County

Wood, S. N. (Samuel Newitt)

S. N. Wood, Relief Agent for Chase County, and master of the Falls Grange subordinate chapter of the Patrons of Husbandry (Kansas State Grange), composed this circular for distribution to other subordinate granges in Chase County. The circular requests information on members' needs for farm relief. The circular demonstrates the broad, but often inadequate, network of social services provided by agricultural fraternities in the 1870s and the desperate conditions farmers faced during unfavorable economic or environmental conditions. George Wood (master of a subordinate grange in Chase County) provided his response by writing his answers in the margins.
