W. B. Almond, attorney for James Lane, composed this law brief at the General Land Office in Lecompton, Kansas Territory. Almond enumerated various points which supported the fact that Lane was the rightful owner of the land over which he and Gaius Jenkins were in dispute, and which ultimately led to Jenkins' death on June 3, 1858. In sum, Almond stated that Lane had purchased the disputed land directly from a man, Chapman, who had sold half to Lane and the other half to the Float.
