HIS little book is designed to anticipate and answer many of the questions which would be asked by persons contemplating a removal from some other region to Kansas. At the same time it has been my purpose to convey information which will be of service not only to Kansas immigrants but to all other immigrants as well. For instance, the articles upon "The Survey of Government Lands," indorsed by the Surveyor General of Kansas; and upon "Acquiring Title to Government Lands," indorsed by the United States Land Officers, are intended to be so explicit that with their help any person may locate Government Land by its corners, and then take proper steps to acquire a title by any of the various methods established by Government.

I have endeavored to be strictly impartial as relates to different localities in Kansas, and have written as if addressing an intimate friend who was entirely ignorant concerning the subjects discussed. It is designed to furnish a hand-book which will be worth all its costs to any person interested in the West.
