Scope and Content

Scope and content: These letters, dated April 1887, are from various individuals regarding Kansas issues to Kansas Governor John Martin. The issues include promotions in military offices, War Department services during the Civil War, State Veterinarian, recommendations, railroads, laws, census, and land. Kansas Governor John Martin succeeded G. W. Glick in 1885. In 1885, the state of affairs was persistent in prosperous economic growth, and city and town expansion. But all that boom and extravagance changed in Martin's last year of office, 1889, when conditions gave way to severe drought and an economic recession.
