|Notes:||This open letter from nineteen Protestant ministers in Boston were asking other Christian congregations in Massachusetts to aid the Kansas settlers under the Emigrant Aid Company. They proposed that $20,000 be contributed by the Christians of Massachusetts, approximately $20 from each parish in the state. The Emigrant Aid Company was established to help provide 1. For freedom, 2. For religion, 3. For education, and 4. For temperance. "There is no want of men. There is great want of the first necessities of civilization, which capital alone can provide." Calvin E. Stowe, Andover; Edward E. Hale, Worcester; and Thomas J. Gaffield, Boston signed the document.|
