The Ross Burns papers are dated 1858-1893 and include orders, correspondence, payrolls, muster rolls, equipment records of the Company E infantry and Company A artillery, invoices, and other documents pertaining to his service in the Civil War. Also included is a payment order signed by M. F. Conway, president of the Leavenworth Constitutional Convention of 1858, as well as Burns' eulogy from 1895. The bulk of Burns' papers are dated 1863-1865. The Howell Jones papers are dated 1888-1928 and include private letters received by Jones in the practice of law or through other professional activities; letters from U. S.Senator John J. Ingalls in which Ingalls endorses a bill advocated by Jones; meeting minutes and business documents of the Black Canon Coal and Fuel Company; correspondence documenting Jones's vice presidency of the Burlingame and Northwestern Railway, particularly the railway's construction between Topeka, Alma, and Manhattan; job openings; bids for railroad jobs, stocks, injury notes, and other topics; correspondence documenting Jones' tenure as manager of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway Land Office; correspondence with Charles Curtis documenting Jones's service as Curtis' senatorial campaign manager; correspondence about securing and constructing a deep-water harbor in Galveston for trade in the Midwest; and personal items relating to a variety of subjects of interest. The correspondence contains information on agricultural prospects, land sales and leases, legal cases, the Gage monument in Topeka, the Battle of the Blue in which Ross Burns fought, AT&SF freight rates, Kansas Bar Association business, and other topics. The personal letters are from U. S. Senator John Martin concerning Martin's judgeship on the U.S. Court of Claims; correspondence from Charles Curtis dating 1894-1928 concerning legislation, Indian affairs, Curtis' campaign, the harbor at Galveston in Texas, Populism, tariffs, income tax, the death of Warren G. Harding, prospects of Calvin Coolidge, requests for Jone's advice on positions, and other topics.
