Authors: Andrews, Christopher C.
Date: June 27, 1854
From Fort Leavenworth, C. C. Andrews wrote a short letter to inform Halderman that "nothing has transpired" at that location during the past week or so but he was certain "that the territory will be populated with a rapidity unparralleled [sic] in the rise of states." Andrews also was sure that men in the legal profession, such as Andrews himself and Halderman, would do quite well financially.

Letter, S. L. Adair to Rev. S. S. Jocelyn
Authors: Adair, Samuel Lyle
Date: May 3, 1855
Samuel Adair wrote from Osawatomie to thank Rev. Jocelyn, an official of the American Missionary Association, for his encouragement and fiscal support of $100. He said they will use it to pay what they owe and then make it last as long as possible. His wife has taken in sewing and washing to make ends meet but Adair asks Jocelyn not to share that information. He discussed the weather and his religious missionary efforts in detail. Adair also commented on migration to Kansas and motives of those coming. This appears to be a draft of a letter sent to Jocelyn.

The colony was formed in New Haven, Connecticut, with the intent that members would migrate to Kansas Territory in the spring of 1856. This book listed members of the colony and the minutes contained information about the activities of the colony for its formation, the trip to Kansas, selecting a town site, through the decision to dissolve it in favor of the Wabaunsee Company, which was charged with organizing the town of Wabaunsee, Kansas Territory. The content, while not including information about the discussions of issues, contained a great deal of information about the formal actions of the colony. The group was sometimes referred to as the Beecher Bible and Rifle Colony. The early minutes contained mentions of the purchase of arms.
