[Abraham H. Cannon]
This morning I received word from Charles Richards that [future Utah senator, and brother to Abraham] Frank is some place in town on another drunk. I gave John Q. and the police notice and urged them to be on the lookout for him. ... I started out with the determination to learn of his whereabouts. I first visited his mother at Aunt M.A. Lambert's and then went on Main Street and searched until about 11 o'clock. The horrible information I obtained was that he was in Kate Flint's establishment and that his associations with that notorious prostitute are well known to several police officers. He has been drinking deeply and spending money very lavishly with fast women. Some of his suppers are said to have cost him $35. I was assured that he would go to Ogden in the morning and I therefore did not attempt to force an entrance to his stopping place.
