1901 article critical of E.W. Perry in misrepresenting opportunity and luring colonists from Chicago resulting in death and disease and premature return to the U.S. Interesting that the scene of the failed colony is not the Perry grant at all, but the neighboring Burchard grant. Compared to articles more close to the time of the original effort, this sounds a bit one-sided.
