No. 18 D.-(Supplement.)

SURVEYOR GENERAL'S Office,

Leavenworth, Kansas, September 24, 1867. Sir: In accordance with your instructions of August 29, 1867, I submit the following as a supplement to my annual report, dated August 24, 1867, showing the resources of this district, “ agricultural and mineral; existing and increasing facilities of internal and external communication, by railway and otherwise."

AGRICULTURAL.

I am pleased to be able to state, as a premise to my remarks on this subject, that never during the history of Kansas has there been a season wherein all products of the soil common to this latitude have yielded more bountifully than the one now closing.

Upon the receipt of your instructions to prepare this report I endeavored to procure from official sources the statistical information required, but the officers of the different counties, to whom this duty belongs, have failed to comply with the law regulating such matters. In the absence of these facts, I have obtained from reliable sources some general ideas and figures, which are given below: Estimated population of Kansas..

300,000 Estimated number of acres improved...

2,000,000

The facts from which the foregoing figures are produced have been taken from the most trustworthy sources, and are deemed as reliable as can be furnished from unofficial data.
