These letters, spanning June 1888, are from individuals, companies, organizations, and state officials regarding Kansas affairs to Kansas Governor John Martin. The letters cover various topics including military affairs, railroads, personal matters/opinions, legislation, the appointment to positions, newspaper/publication articles, aid/endorsement, soldiers, agriculture, and requests for information. 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)
