These letters are from the State Board of Charities about various charitable institutions to Kansas Governor John Martin. The topics of the letters include establishing an Industrial Reformatory in Salina, coal storage for the Kansas charitable institutions, employed architects, reports, soldiers, expenditures, the Reform School, meetings, the Soldiers Orphan Home, the Insane Asylum, and concerns with the board. The Kansas State Industrial Reformatory (KSIR) came into existence in 1885 when Kansas Governor John Martin signed a bill that the State Legislature had passed, authorizing the purchase of land to be donated in order to build a reformatory. The site chosen for the new reformatory was Hutchinson.
