Item Description
  Letter, Geo. Bayless to John Bayless, Esq.
Author: Bayless, George
Date: September 15, 1857

George Bayless wrote to his uncle John Bayless in Kirkwood, New York, regarding the prospect of settling in Highland, Kansas Territory. George stated that he had caught the "Kansas fever", and greatly desired to travel there. However, his studies in medical school kept him behind. George asked his uncle if, in two or three years' time, he might be able to obtain premium office space at a price similar to those at the present time. He added that the "moral and religious regulations" proposed by his uncle made Highland sound especially appealing to him.
