These letters are from various individuals regarding "Indian" raid claims to Kansas Governor John Martin. The topics include military expenses like drafts, loss of life, the suffering and need of provisions, claims made by citizens affected by the raids, and wanting to collect claims. There is also a copy of the rules and regulations when it comes to claims. The last raid occurred in September 1878 when a band of some 300 Cheyenne, led by Chiefs Dull Knife and Little Wolf, fled Indian Territory for their homeland north of Kansas. On their flight through the state, forty settlers were killed and a great deal of property was stolen or destroyed.
