Nelson Rusk, writing from Kansas City, Missouri, described for William Barnes, secretary of the New York State Kansas Committee, some of the difficulties he experienced during his journey to Kansas with a party of settlers from New York. Rusk also offered his opinion that the New York party would fail in its effort to establish a cohesive colony in Kansas due to ineffective leadership and selfishness among the settlers.
