The documents in this file pertain to matters concerning the appointment of Superintendent of the Blind Asylum. A letter from Minister James Lawrence requests Kansas Governor Harvey to reappoint Sawyer's position as the Superintendent. A separate letter suggests the Governor make changes in the management at the Asylum. Many letters are regarding efforts to remove H. H. Sawyer as the Superintendent, however, there is also correspondence from individuals who support Sawyer and attest to his management. A petition from citizens of Wyandotte, Kansas, asks that Sawyer be reappointed in his present position. Additional documents are petitions to have another person appointed Superintendent.
