Description: 

Letter from Edgar Shook to Ewing Young Mitchell, Jr. on April 16, 1934. Shook agrees with Mitchell on the necessity of a Kansas City candidate for Senate that is not tied to the Pendergast machine. He then discusses possible candidates for said position. Despite the Pendergast machine victory during the recent Kansas City local election, Shook is confident that "the tragedies of election day sounded an endless knell to this machine."
