In this letter to Governor Capper, Kansas Adjutant General Charles S. Huffman details the situation at Camp Funston during the influenza outbreak of 1918. Ordered by Capper to investigate conditions at Camp Funston, Huffman informs Capper that conditions throughout the area were more than satisfactory to meet the demands imposed on the staff and facilities at the camp. In fact, Huffman states that "I can assure you that no parent or relative need have any apprehension but what boys in camp are receiving the best of attention and treatment."
