These letters, spanning June 1887, are from individuals, companies, organizations, and state officials regarding Kansas affairs to Kansas Governor John Martin. The letters cover various topics including requests for information, personal matters/opinions, aid/endorsement, finances, prohibition, railroads, the appointment to positions, legislation, newspaper/publication articles, and ex-Confederate voting. Martin was fortunate to have acquired upon his inauguration, in 1885, a state of affairs that was persistent in prosperous economic growth, and city and town expansion. But, all that boom and extravagance changed in his last year of office, 1888, when conditions gave way to severe drought and an economic recession.

Creator: Kansas. Governor (1885-1889 : Martin)
