Letter dated April 29, 1918 from F. H. Lohr to William Langer about the night in Minot, ND where two force men [one of them undercover detective Kersy Gowin] were shot. Lohr informs Langer that the vice holes have all closed because they fear the police, and the drinking in Minot is worse than ever.
Lohr followed around the chief of police trying to gain information on the shooters. Lohr tells Langer he is uncertain when he is able to come to Minot again. After only being married for a short period of time his money does not allow him to travel and stay for long periods of time. Lohr reassures Langer that he is still in his service.
