Letter from Leslie M. Shaw to Benjamin F. Barnes

Shaw, Leslie M. (Leslie Mortier), 1848-1932
Leslie M. Shaw returns Governor Crane's letter and offers his observations. Free hides, suggested by Crane, would not increase revenue. Shaw says reducing the duty on iron and steel would not increase revenue and may go against the Republican party.
