Letter dated April 8th, 1918 from Kersey Gowin to Attorney General William Langer regarding the death of Assistant Attorney General Daniel V Brennan, who had recently died of pneumonia. Gowin expresses his condolences and his admiration for Brennan, and thanks Langer for arranging a recent payment. Gowin indicates that he needs to hire another man, as one is not enough "with the Police & Sheriff Office all on the other side." Responding to Langer's statement in Langer's previous letter, that since Brennan's death everything is "up in the air," Gowin expresses his willingness to continue in his efforts if Langer is to start things up again, and if not, asks whether Langer could place him in another state where there is work for him.
