Pencil portrait of Carry A. Nation by Albert T. Reid (1873-1955). The title is the First Press Picture of Mrs. Nation. Nation met with Governor William Stanley at his office in the Kansas Capitol on January 29, 1901, to protest the illegal existence of joints (saloons) in the state. Reid made note of Nation's blackened right eye, which was given to her by the wife of an Enterprise jointist days earlier. Suggesting that the state's prohibition laws were not being enforced, Nation pointed to her bruise and said, "Governor, you gave me that black eye." This sketch ran on the front page of the Topeka Mail & Breeze on February 1, 1901.
