This printed item documented the organization of the town of Hyatt in Anderson Couty, Kansas Territory. Issac Hull and C. J. Farley served as the officers at a May 2, 1857, meeting that unanimously adopted a "declaration of rights" and "articles of fraternization" suggested by W. F. M. Arny. Arny was elected mayor of Hyatt for a year. The document also included information about the organization of Anderson County. D. N. Buffum presided at the county organization meeting held May 4, 1857, and Albert Blauvelt served as secretary. After the resolutions organizing the county were approved, W. F. M. Arny was named judge and associate judges were J. Y. Campbell, Col. Harvey, Solomon Kaufman, and B. Tyler. Election judges--S. P. Hand, John S. Robinson, and Darius Frankinberger-were also selected.
