In this letter to his brother James Bickerdyke, Hiram Bickerdyke describes Indian raids in 1868 on Salina, Kansas. According to Hiram, an article published regarding the incident, titled "The Straight of It," contained many inaccuracies which he hoped to correct. In fact, Hiram states that the article "at the Best is misleading in many of its statements which are made without any reference to the ability of any one being able to Prove some of them." During the period when the raid occurred, Hiram served as a scout for the U.S. military.
