Adair, writing from Osawatomie, Kansas Territory, reports on conditions in Kansas to Mrs. Hibbard, who was the president of the Woman's Kansas Aid and Liberty Association of Chicago, Illinois. Adair states that many recent emigrants are ill, and that others, who are using up their own reserves to help the emigrants, hope they will be repaid by aid received in Kansas. He reports that a group of Georgians camped near Osawatomie had run off more than 18 horses. Some free state men had prepared to confront them, but the Georgians had already left the area. Adair writes of rumors that a large force was coming to burn Osawatomie.
