Item Description
  Circular, Information for Kanzas Immigrants, 1855
Author: Webb, Thomas H. (Hopkins), 1801-1866
Date: 1855

Thomas Webb compiled the information in this circular not to "entice people to go to the Kanzas", but rather to "collect the best and most reliable information relative to the Territory, and furnish the same to those desiring it." The circular provides details about the logistics of the trip to Kansas: when and how it should be done, and what provisions to take, for example. It also includes information about subjects such as weather, farming, Indians, and employment, to name a few.
