This copy of a letter, which is added onto the end of another copied letter, is addressed to Horace White from Thaddeus Hyatt, president of the National Kansas Committee. The letter begins with a description of Hyatt's sleeping arrangements the past two nights and then moves on to other personal matters. He concludes the letter with committee business, mentioning his fear that funds and provisions were not truly being handed out to the neediest settlers. He also details an encounter with Mr. Carpenter, whose mother was Clarina Nichols. At the end of the letter are copies of two telegraphic dispatches sent by Thaddeus Hyatt to William F. M. Arny, general agent for the committee, on November 22th and 24th, 1856. Both dispatches concern Dr. Root, who was involved in Kansas relief.

Creator: Hyatt, Thaddeus
Date: Between August 19, 1856 and November 24, 1856
