Item Description
  Circular, To the Friends of Free Kansas in the States
Author: Kansas State Central Committee
Date: October 20, 1856

This handwritten "appeal" was sent out to all those who had or might be inclined to support the free state cause in Kansas, assuring them that the committee in Kansas had reached full accord with the National Kansas Committee and could be "relied upon" to distribute aid channeled through Chicago. "Our people are still in extreme want, and hundreds of families are entirely dependent upon your charities."
