These letters, spanning 1886 to 1887, are from the residents and offices of Wichita County, Kansas regarding its organization to Kansas Governor John Martin. Many of the letters are signed petitions confirming that the population requirements are met for its organization. A Governor's Proclamation appoints an official to verify the population requirements. There are also affidavits, from the Notary Public, signed by residents verifying the population requirements.
