Letter from Ewing Young Mitchell, Jr. to his nephew, Kansas City Court of Appeals Judge Ewing C. Bland on January 18, 1937. Mitchell continues his heated response by claiming that Bland was only elected because of his father's (Richard P. Bland) reputable civic career. Mitchell asserts that Bland tarnishes his father's memory by not resigning his position from a court allegedly influenced by the Pendergast machine.
