A letter from Attorney Lorenzo Westover to Kansas Governor St. John, apparently denouncing the church's interpretations of the intended legal consequences of the proposed prohibition amendment. He accuses temperance preachers of "fanaticism" and ignorance about human law, and appeals for "advocates outside the pulpit".
