In this letter to W.W. Cone, John C. McCoy discusses the early settlement of Kansas, including his belief that Napoleon Boone was the "first white child born within the limits of the state of Kansas." McCoy, who first came to the "territory" in 1830, lists some of the early settlers living in the eastern portion of the area. McCoy also discusses a stone house built by the U.S. Government for White Plume, head chief of the Kansa Indians.
