This is a letter from Dr. W.H. Goldsbury, Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, to the Kansas Historical Society, Topeka, Kansas. In the letter, Goldsbury recounts an Indian massacre that supposedly took place in 1878 at Sappa Creek in Kansas. Reported to be killed was a George F. Walters. But Dr. Goldsbury personally reports that Mr. Walters lived near Hennessey, Oklahoma, until 1901. Dr. Goldsbury asks if the Historical Society has any information on the raid and if he can have a copy.
