Writing from Ogden, Kansas Territory, the authors stated that they had been voted an appropriation by the Congregational Union of New York to build a church but that had not received any of the money. However, their numbers had increased and they had received subscriptions to begin work. They needed additional money to finish the building and were requesting $200 from the committee. They described the advantages of Ogden being where the Smoky Hill and Republican rivers flowed into the Kansas, near Fort Riley, and with prospects for a railroad.
