Letter, Silas Armstrong to Dear Sister
Authors: Armstrong, Silas
Date: March 1, 1857
Silas Armstrong wrote again to "Sister", this time from Washington, D.C., regarding her dissatisfaction with the purchase Silas had made for her in town shares. Armstrong reassured her that he had treated the investment as if it were his own. He told her that he had tried again to locate her float in the Shawnee lands, but that her uncertainty in all this business made him afraid to continue, for fear that she become angry with him. Armstrong added that he was helping the Seneca and Wyandot delegation with their business, but feared that they too would not accomplish anything.

Certificate, receipt for purchase of Iowa Trust Lands
Authors: No authors specified.
Date: June 8, 1857
When the Territory was opened in 1854, the Iowa Indians inhabited most of northern Doniphan County. Shortly after the passage of the Kansas- Nebraska bill a treaty was made between the U.S. Government and the Indians, by which the Indians sold a most of their lands and accepted the diminished reserve which they still occupy. The land that was then released to the Government was known as the "Iowa Trust lands," and was, with the exception of 480 acres, sold to the highest bidder (adapted from William G. Cutler's "History of the State of Kansas").
