From Ashton Keith to Lloyd C. Stark

Description: 

Letter from Ashton Keith to Governor Lloyd C. Stark. Keith writes that Stark has a great deal of work remaining if he wishes to root out corruption and graft in Kansas City, as "all the splendid work that has been done by yourself and others positively has not yet even scratched the prime source of control of machine politics." He suggests that graft money can be traced to "two certain banks" and "can furnish some strong indications as to deep interest in ... the 'machine.'"
