Letter from Jack Savage, a Union Pacific Railway Company Government Director, to Wyoming Territorial Governor Francis E. Warren, October 14, 1885

Transcription: I don't suppose you care to retain your office, but I consider the present no time for your dismissal. I therefore telegraphed yesterday to the President asking that action be delayed until a letter from the Government Directors could reach him + have just sent the enclosed signed by me to be signed by Messrs Hanna + Alexander + transmitted to the President. From their conversation while here I have no doubt both will sign it. I hope this course will not be distasteful to you. At any rate it is the only way in which we can express to [text missing] our sense of your [text missing] conduct during the last [text missing] weeks." This handwritten note is on the back of the letter to Pres. Grover Cleveland (resource identifier ah00013_30_1_10141885)
