Rachel A. Garrison, David Garrison's widow, writes from Yellow Springs, Ohio, with instructions to Samuel L. Adair to settle her family's affairs in Kansas Territory. She wants to try to hold on to her claim. She hopes to sell a wagon for $100 and to collect on a note for $40. Sometimes, she writes, she fells like returning to Kansas, despite her husband's death there. Her late husband, David Garrison, was killed in the Battle of Osawatomie, Kansas Territory, on August 30, 1856.
