Samuel Adair writes from Osawatomie, Kansas Territory, to thank Reverend Jocelyn, an official of the American Missionary Association, for his encouragement and fiscal support of $100. Adair says they would use it to pay what they owe, and would then make it last as long as possible. Adair's wife had taken in sewing and washing to make ends meet, but Adair asks Jocelyn not to share that information. He discusses the weather and his religious missionary efforts in detail. Adair also comments on migration to Kansas and speculates on the motives of those coming. This appears to be a draft of a letter sent to Jocelyn.
