George Washington Martin to James R. Bickerdyke
Creator: Martin, George W. (George Washington), 1841-1914
Date: February 19, 1902
In this typed message to James R. Bickerdyke, George W. Martin of the Kansas State Historical Society informs Bickerdyke that Mrs. Julia A. Chase has "concluded to eliminate the portion of her paper about which there is controversy." The correspondence between Hiram Bickerdyke, James R. Bickerdyke, Julia A. Chase, and George W. Martin regarding the Native Indian raids on the Salina, Kansas, area in 1868 dealt with Julia Chase's article "The Straight of It," particularly part of the article which questioned Mary Ann "Mother" Bickerdyke's account of the events. After all, as George W. Martin explains regarding Chase's article, "your mother's reputation as an army nurse is beyond question, and it should not be effected by a controversy of this character."
