This bail bond for William T. Collins was issued on March 19, 1860 by Justice of the Peace Joseph Welsh. Collins was accused of "trespass in the Indian Country" within the Kansas Territory. The bond states Collins was a resident of Franklin County. The increase in settlers to Kansas during the territorial period led to conflict with Native American tribes, most of whom were relocated to the area by the federal government.

Date: May 19, 1860
