D. Walker, Lewisburg, Arkansas, to Governor Flanagin

Walker urges Flanagin to visit "the counties along up the river" to boost enlistment. He writes that many men have been driven from their homes in the mountain country and are desperate. He believes that many of them would be willing to fight if they could join state service and not be sent out of the state. Arms and ammunition are also needed by two small companies who have been raised to drive out Jayhawkers in the mountains. Kie Oldham collection
