Samuel L. Adair to William F. M. Arny

Dates: December 18, 1856

Creator: Adair, Samuel Lyle, 1811-1898

Arny was a representative of the National Kansas Committee. In this letter, Adair inquires about various boxes and money that had been sent to the committee in Chicago to forward to people in Osawatomie, Kansas Territory. Adair also seems to be responding to a request from Arny for information about settlers from Wisconsin in the Osawatomie area and also members of the Eldridge-Pomeroy party. Adair provides information on James Fuller, Thomas Roberts, Joseph Lawes and William and Wakeman (?) Partridge. He lists the names of four men who came with Eldridge and Pomeroy but provides no additional information about them. He also notes that he loaned Mr. Hyatt $50 and had an "order" for Arny to reimburse him.
