Description

Letter, From Henry G. Owen to Attorney General William Langer, handwritten on Owen and Owen Attorneys at Law letterhead. Owen writes from St. Luke's Hospital in Minot, where he is hospitalized with a broken leg as the result of a "bad fall" he took on his way to the Great Northern Depot to mail his previous report to Langer.

Owen laments his predicament, noting that it comes at a bad time because Minot is "wide open" with "houses of ill fame galore.

Owen asks Langer to have "Sheets" (presumably Albert Sheets, Jr., Assistant Attorney General) drop him a line, as he has "a lot of long day[s] ahead of me."
