    • To the Friends in Private To Be Torn up.


      Knowing that you will get a history of this affair with Uncle Pringle I will give you a True version of the affair so as You will be rightly informed. You of course are aware that Uncle although not counted a hard drinker spent a good deal of his Time in the Tavern at nights and these nights of carousing ended in Drunkenness. These sprees were not so frequent but they always ended the one way. The Broken leg at Paris was caused through Whiskey & since then he has occasionally had some outbursts. The sum and substance of the whole thing is this that if any one continues to drink it soon get worse & worse - about a month ago he was going to fight in Hilborns' at four oclock in the morning, this last spree was kept up till five oclock. he got very ugly and abusive and quarreled with The Brown's Boys and when unfit for them they abused him. his face was bruised and one eye a little Black too bad to be seen down street. a thing I earnestly hoped for as it brings shame. he is heartily sorry and ashamed of it and has not been down street since and he has sworn from Drink and going to join to Temperance Society. This has made us feel glad for it is a right step for him or any one and I earnestly hope God will move his heart aright and keep him and us all under his protecting
      arms .
