In this letter to Franklin G. Adams, J.K. Barnd, editor of the Ness County News of Ness, Kansas, discusses his interest in the route that explorer Zebulon Pike took when visiting the Pawnees in 1806. Barnd explains that previous accounts of the path followed by Pike were inaccurate, and that the village was most likely "nine or ten miles further up the river and on its west bank."
