These letters are from various individuals regarding the establishment of first class cities, based on population, to Kansas Governor John Martin. The first documents list the first and second class cities along with the year they were established. These letters discuss the name for the first class cities, later called Kansas City and Wichita. Many people chose the name Kansas City with a signed petition. Other suggested names include Wyandotte and Martin City. Besides suggesting a name, other letters ask for a proclamation. There is a Governor's Proclamation for the declaration of first class city to Wichita.
