These letters, dated April 1885, are from various individuals regarding the railroad to Kansas Governor John Martin. The correspondence include topics on railroad charges, cattle inspector and transportation, horse thieves, and regulations. Kansas Governor John Martin succeeded G. W. Glick in 1885. In 1885, the state of affairs was persistent in prosperous economic growth, and city and town expansion. But all that boom and extravagance changed in Martin's last year of office, 1889, when conditions gave way to severe drought and an economic recession.
