These letters, spanning 1885 to 1889, are from the residents and offices of Cloud County, Kansas regarding county affairs to Kansas Governor John Martin.

Wilson, is the only candidate and has multiple recommendations as well as signed petitions for his appointment. Other letters discuss the vacancy of the county coroner due to the resignation of E.
