James Garrison writes from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, to his cousin Samuel Adair in Kansas Territory. The letter discusses relief efforts on behalf of the free state settlers and concerns about fraud on the part of agents collecting money and goods. Garrison writes that the Cincinnati Gazette had published a long list of names of Kansas citizens who had been refused clothing by the relief society. He feels an explanation to the public was needed if the relief efforts were to be continued. The letterhead included an engraving of Antioch College. The sheet of paper also contained a letter from Gamaliel Garrison. (See item #90260.)
