In this letter, Kansas Governor St. John receives a rather poignant letter from old friend G.W. Bain, apologizing for endorsing the introduction of a reformed alcoholic, who aspired to become a temperance worker in Kansas. The man failed and began drinking again, because he was "too weak for the great battle he found awaiting him."

Creator: Bain, G. W.
