Scope and Content

Scope and content: These letters, spanning January 1888, are from individuals, companies, organizations, and state offices regarding Kansas affairs to Kansas Governor John Martin. The letters cover various topics including personal matters/opinions, aid/endorsement, legislation, newspaper/publication articles, financial matters, Kansas counties, and soldiers. Martin was fortunate to have acquired upon his inauguration, in 1885, a state of affairs that was persistent in prosperous economic growth, and city and town expansion. But, all that boom and extravagance changed in his last year of office, 1888, when conditions gave way to severe drought and an economic recession.
