Item Description
  Constitution of the Descandum Kansas Improvement Company
Author: Soule, A.
Date: 1855

The document contained seven articles which related to the purpose of the company and how to become a member. This company sought to improve Kansas Territory by civilizing and enlightening the settlers. It was signed by the treasurer of the company. The organization appeared to be a satirical one, perhaps aimed at the various emigrant aid companies.
