These letters, spanning February 1888, are from individuals, companies, and state offices regarding Kansas affairs to Kansas Governor John Martin. The letters cover various topics including legislation, newspaper/publication articles, finances, soldiers, criminal cases, the appointment of officials, personal opinions/complaints, and the Board of Trade. Governor 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 when conditions gave way to severe drought and an economic recession.

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