This file includes general correspondence relating to the abandonment of Lucy Sharpe Brooks by her husband. The first letter by Lucy Sharpe Brooks is reiterating her desire for justice of her husband after he married her and then left with her money, leaving her homeless and penniless. She is writing to Governor Capper after receiving no response from the previous Governor, George H. Hodges (1866-1947). The second letter is the Governor's office acknowledging the letter but saying the State has nothing to do with domestic matters such as Lucy Sharpe Brooks is writing about.

Creator: Kansas. Governor (1915-1919: Capper)
