James Montgomery, writing from Mound City, Kansas Territory, responds to Leander Martin's suggestion that he (Montgomery) contest the results of the November 8, 1859 election for representatives to the territorial legislature. Montgomery lost a race for a seat in the territorial house of representatives to William R. Wagstaff. Montgomery indicates that he had no plans to contest the election himself but would not object if others contest it on his behalf. Martin's letter is included at the top of the document.
