Scope and Content

Scope and content: These letters, spanning December 1888 through January 1889, are from residents as well as state and federal offices regarding Kansas affairs to Kansas Governor John Martin. The letters discuss various topics including legislation, farming, finances, personal matters/opinions, railroads, appointments to positions, American Bar Association, and military affairs. John Martin served as 10th governor of Kansas: January 12, 1885, to January 14, 1889. He 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 when conditions gave way to severe drought and an economic recession.
