In this letter William Brindle, receiver of the Lecompton Land Office, informed his associate Thomas Hendricks that the Delaware Indian lands that had been put up for public sale in 1856 had sold. The Delaware had owned some of the prime timber land in Kansas Territory, and as a result all sections of the Delaware lands were sold to white settlers.
