Letter dated September 3, 1917 from Kersey Gowin to Attorney General William Langer about a shipment of alcohol to arrive in Minot from Montana. Gowin has become acquainted with a local and asked for 200 to 400 quarts of alcohol, and is informed about 500 pints that were taken to Dad-Marsh's Place. The local also mentions a "dam squeaker" who, if caught, will be lucky to get out of town alive.
