From Bloomington, Illinois, W. H. Powell, the Illinois State Superintendent of Public Instruction, writes that he had noticed James Blood's call for seed wheat for the "unfortunate settlers of Kansas," and he wonders if they would be interested in trading "for Stock--either Cattle or Stock Hogs." Powell offers to arrange shipment of 2000 bushels of "good seed wheat" immediately if a deal is struck. He writes that farmers in his area were growing "Red Amber wheat, and that if Blood needed a character reference, he could contact "Mr. Lincoln at Springfield, where I reside, & who can vouch for my good faith &C."
