In this letter, Kansas Governor Arthur Capper responds to an earlier letter from Mrs. Dollie Boland of Stafford, Kansas. Boland had written him to find out about her brother who was in the hospital at Camp Funston. Capper explains that due to the influenza outbreak, the U.S. Army authorities "threw a quarantine around the camp and declined to let anybody in." Dollie's letter to the Governor can be found in Kansas Memory as Unit ID 217170.
