This correspondence includes letters received by C. A. Morris, the Kansas Adjutant General, on a variety of topics but most of the letters request arms or troops to protect settlers from feared raids by Indians in the area. Many letters also inform the state of the enrollment of local militias for such protection in absence of assistance by state units. Requests for information on filing claims for damage from Indian raids are also included, as are requests on Price Raid claims. Many of the letters are addressed to Governor Thomas Osborn. Many official or unofficial militia units enrolled by local communities express an urgent desire to receive orders to pursue the Indians on the southern border of Kansas. Indian tribes mentioned include the Cheyenne, Osage and Pawnee.
