Writing from Ogden, Kansas Territory, the authors state that they have been voted an appropriation by the Congregational Union of New York to build a church but that they had not received any of the money. However, their numbers have increased, and they have received subscriptions to begin work. They need additional money to finish the building and are requesting $200 from the committee. They describe the advantages of Ogden being where the Smoky Hill and Republican rivers flowed into the Kansas, near Fort Riley, and with prospects for a railroad.
