This report, written by Edward E. Hale of the Worchester County Kansas League, reported that the Emigrant Aid Company had increased its prices to convey emigrants to Kansas Territory because all travel must be made by land "[a]s long as the ice closes the navigation of the lakes" and of the Missouri River westward from St. Louis, Missouri. Travel prices were expected to drop again once water routes were reopened for use.
