Description

Letter dated July 13, 1917 from Attorney General William Langer to Sheriff H. E. Collicot of Hettinger, ND asking Collicot to "ascertain what drinks are being sold in your county," including Malta and other malt beverages, as well as whether W. B. Right Cut chewing tobacco is being sold.

In the top margin of this letter, which appears to be a carbon copy, is typed in different ink: "Sheriff's letter, to all sheriffs" and at the bottom, also in different ink, is a postscript asking Collicot to buy samples of all soft drinks and tobacco and hold them while he sends a list to Langer.

Below that it typed: Finished writing to all on the sheriff's list, July 25, 1917.
