From Brownville, Kansas Territory, Gillpatrick writes seeking compensation for his losses to the "border ruffins" or, specifically, at the hand of "a miserable horse thief from Missouri." Gillpatrick had been advised by a Chicago friend that all such aid was being distributed through the Lawrence-based committee, thus his letter to Pomeroy, who would "doubtless know who they are."
