From Merrill V. Nipps to Lloyd C. Stark

Description: 

Letter from Merrill V. Nipps to Governor Lloyd C. Stark suggesting the governor order national guard troops to protect poll workers on election day. He writes "the police department is made up of machine workers so they cannot be expected to protect the election officials." Without outside protection, he is concerned "there will be killings if the people resist the machine" with their votes.
