Orville Chester Brown apparently wrote this letter to Samuel L. Adair in Osawatomie, Kansas Territory, from Utica, New York. He reported that he had spoken to ten different groups about needs in Kansas. He reported that Mr. Arny of the National Kansas Committee planned to visit Osawatomie, and promised that the people there would get their fair share of relief aid. He asked Adair a number of questions about the situation in Osawatomie, including questions about pro-slavery settlers. He discussed elections and the Know Nothing party.
