These letters, spanning the month of June 1887, are from the residents and offices of Elk County, Kansas regarding the office of probate judge to Kansas Governor John Martin. A couple letters state the current probate judge, Nathan Davis, was charged with forgery and a certified signed petition documents the vacancy in the office of probate judge. The rest of the letters recommend candidates for the position. There is also a newspaper clipping that lists all the candidates. Many candidates received signed petitions endorsing them for probate judge. Elk County was organized on March 25, 1875 and named for the Elk River.
