Report of H.L. Strickler, Commissioner to Audit Claims of Citizens of the Territory of Kansas, contained in the U.S. Congressional Serial Set of congressional and executive documents. Claim #188 was filed on behalf of the company of Rees & Keith by Lewis N. Rees and Perry Keith, partners in the business in Leavenworth County. It was for provisions supplied to the territorial militia under the command of Brigadier General Lucian J. Eastin and Colonel Archibal Payne. Jarrett Todd served as the commissary for Colonel Payne's regiment. The items furnished included various food stuffs, kitchen equipment, and some ammunition. Each claimant had to submit an itemized list and have two witnesses attest to the losses claimed. Even though many of these claims were approved for payment, no funds were ever appropriated or distributed.
