This letter is from a former inmate who finds it difficult to face society. There are many who shun him because of his prison record. He states that he wishes that men might read the inner person and know how he feels, why he was tempted and then judge the misdemeanor. He feels he would have sunk lower if it had not been for his mother's prayers. He wishes to be remembered to his old friends and Colonel L. Dewey. He intends to remain in Carrollton for a while and then work south. Abstract Number - 1106
