Council Grove Kans.

April 13th  1880


Dear Governor.

Col. C.N. Goulding of Toledo Ohio & late U.S. Council at Hong Kong China has been in our City for the past two days doing very effective Temperance work.  And as he expects to visit Topeka at an early day he asked me if I could endorse him in a note to you.  I do so most heartily for I think he is one of the most practical and effective workers I have yet found advocating the cause.  He is not only Earnest and Eloquent but has a peculiar persuasive power about him that is found wanting

in our Temperance workers generally, and by it he has reached a class of people in our town that we could never do anything with, two of the strongest opponents to the Amendment signed the pledge under his appeal Sunday night and I think now will cordially support it.  I will only add Col. Goulding will give satisfaction wherever he goes.  Arrangements are complete for your meeting next Sunday  Do not disappoint us.

With kindest wishes I remain your friend

J M Miller
