Correspondence

Letter from Charles E. Ellis, one of Kansas City's 12th Ward election judges, to Governor Lloyd C. Stark, concerned about threatened violence against poll workers who don't obey the Pendergast machine in upcoming elections, and requesting military protection due to distrust in the police. He reports that when he acted as an election judge, that he "was forcibly ejected by two North End Ruffians" when he didn't obey a Democratic precinct captain.
