Item Description
  Circular, Information for Kanzas Immigrants, 1857
Author: Webb, Thomas H. (Hopkins), 1801-1866
Date: 1857

Thomas Webb compiled this more comprehensive version of his earlier circulars by the same name. Containing much of the same information as the previous versions, such as details about the logistics of the trip to Kansas and subjects such as weather, farming, Indians, and employment, it features a large section that describes individual town settlements. This circular also addresses the proslavery and free state conflict, though in a nonpartisan manner, considering the interests of both groups.
