Iola Ks Jan 19th 1880

Hon. J.P. St. John

Gov Topeka

Sir.  I see it reported that you are in favor of leaving the temperance Amendment out of politics.

I hope this is true and I believe that the leading Republicans of Allen County who favor the amendment want it left out of the party platform   I favor the amendment and expect to advocate it and willing to go anywhere to speak in its favor yet believe as a party it would lose us many votes if made a party issue.  Allen county will give at least two hundred majority in favor of the Amendment

Resp your obe-svt 

W. H. Slavens
