These letters, spanning July 1888, are from individuals, organizations, companies, and state officials regarding Kansas affairs to Kansas Governor John Martin. The letters cover various topics including aid/endorsement, campaigning, personal matters/opinions, legislation, soldiers, newspaper/publication articles, and railroads. 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)
