There is a letter written from Webb Bertram to Kansas Governor St. John requesting the State Commission investigate claims caused by the Indian Raid of 1878, he also asks that the session take place in Oberlin, Kansas instead of Norton Center. Similarly, is a letter from G. W. Morrell informing the Governor that he has a claim of $150 dollars and asks that the money be forward to him as soon as possible. The letters in this file pertain to claims caused by the Indian Raid in Kansas in 1878 when a band of Northern Cheyenne Native Americans attacked white settlers that later caused a fight in Oberlin, Kansas between Captain Rees' company and the Northern Cheyenne.
