Creator: Kansas. Governor (1879-1883: Glick)
Date: August 29, 1884
Dr. I. W. Day of McPherson writes to Governor George W. Glick expressing support for pardoning Dr. J. B. Curtis of Lindsborg, who was prosecuted for violating Kansas' prohibition law by prescribing beer to a patient. Dr. Day describes his professional evaluation of the patient's symptoms as recorded in the court testimony, and explains that he believes the patient really was sick and that beer was an appropriate remedy. This letter is an example of the controversies that arose over an exception in the state's alcohol prohibition law which allowed the use of alcohol for medicinal purposes. Some people believed that doctors were prescribing alcohol without a real medicinal need, and some doctors and druggists were prosecuted for alleged violations of the alcohol prohibition law.
