These testimonies, taken down by the National Kansas Committee (possibly by Thaddeus Hyatt), relate the Kansas Territory experiences of Samuel Nickel and Miles Morris, including their personal backgrounds. Nickel's claim was burned to the ground by Missourians, and he was forced to hide in the woods for fear they would take his life. The testimony of Miles Morris describes his settlement on Pottawatomie Creek.

Date: December 30, 1856
