James S. Martin correspondence

James S. Martin correspondence

Dates: 1915

Handwritten and typewritten correspondence. Three of the items were received by Martin and one was sent by him. One of the letters is from James H. Wolfe, an attorney in Salt Lake City, Utah, and another is from C. G. Patterson, a resident of Salt Lake City. Both Wolfe and Patterson are concerned with the Mormon Church's domination of politics in Utah. They are concerned that the United States Senator and Mormon Church Apostle, Reed Smoot, is controlled by the Mormon Church. Also included is a resolution addressed to the members of the United States Senate to unseat Reed Smoot. A fouth item is a note from Martin to an unnamed United States Senator relating to the other letters he received.
