Edward Stevens is the new Deputy Grand Worthy Patriarch for the Monroe and Amanda Divisions of the Sons of Temperance. He sends a report to Finley, who is currently serving as Grand Worthy Patriarch. Stevens reports that there is apathy in his region regarding the cause of temperance. He shares several ideas with Finley about improving the efficacy of the Sons of Temperance -- advocating limits regarding the sale of liquor, paying closer attention to the beautiful ceremonial rites of the order, adopting an interchange of officers, and the universal dissemination of temperance tracts.
