This item, sent to J.V. Kelly by Reverend T.H. Kinsella, contains information on the Jesuit Mission at Kickapoo, Leavenworth County, Kansas. Kinsella addresses Catholic missionary life in the West, and the first efforts of such missionaries in the Indian Territory/Kansas Territory. Established in 1836 by Father Van Quickenborne, Kinsella explains that Kickapoo "had streets and stores of many kinds, a blacksmith's shop and a sawmill." Kinsella's letter also includes details on St. Mary's Mission, the influx of newcomers after 1854, Catholic work in Leavenworth, Kansas, and the flooding of the town of Kickapoo.
