Script Details

W.A. Harris and another farmer experienced the drought of 1860 in the Flint Hills of Kansas and wrote a letter describing their travails. 
Dear Sir,

On behalf of the suffering and destitute people of this district, we address you as the agent of the Honorable Thaddeus Hyatt, representing the entire failure of crops of every kind and the consequent suffering of many who have not the means of averting it. Many have already left their homes here and more will be forced to, unless timely aid can be procured, and many who cannot pull up and go where their is plenty will have to suffer. To be brief, if you can do anything towards assisting us to provisions and clothing to be returned when we have raised another crop or when times change for the better so that people can turn stock or property for money or provisions, please answer us immediately and let us know whether you can do any thing or not.

Yours Respectfully,
W. A. Harris and A.L. Williams
