James Griffing wrote from Indianapolis, Indiana, to his fiancee, J. Augusta Goodrich, in Owego, New York. Griffing, a Methodist minister, discussed his plans to go to "Nebraska." He stated that there had been reports of Indian depredations in Kansas Territory, and commented that "encroachments" of whites upon Indian lands would lead either to greater violence or to the Indians disappearing "noiselessly before the consuming avarice of the white man."
