A Keeley Graduate Given
Kirksville Mo Due G 02
To the Officers and Mombors of
Keeloy League No 1 Dwightlll
Dear Sirs and Brothers When
I graduated from tho Keeloy In
stitute 1 promised to writo and
toll you how 1 was getting along
I started for Dwight with very lit
tle faith in the Keoloy Cure I
bad read of Dwight and Dr Kee
loy over since the Institute had
Btarted but I always thought that
1 could bo man enough to quit
drinking without being treated
for drunkenness Tho day that I
left for Dwight I was trying to
sober up so that I could goto
worlr X was yery nervous and
Mighty and every timo that
would shut my oyea I could seo all
kinds of animalB and birds flying
around me and they all seemed
to be in a hurrv
To mako the case worse with me
a httlo boy who livod in the ad
joining house to mo was dvint
and 1 could hoar his parontB weep
ing oyer him and they camo over
aner my wue out l did not want
her to go for 1 was afraid to wtay
alone J thoucht that I miLdit die
at any lime from the way I web
feeling so to console me my
wife went and got a paper that
uuu mi jirucie in concerning a
friend of mino that had been to
Dwight and wanted mo to read it
while Bho was gone 1 read the
paper and sho did not come back
and not wanting to otuy alone 1
Happened to think of a man who
had been a drinking man but now
was running a successful business
and though that ho might toll
mo how ho quit drinking aud that
1 could bo
benefitted in h -mo way
So I went down to 1hb livery barn
and went right up to him unci
said Bill how in the name of
God did yon over quit drinking
and to my astonishment ho aaid
Why John I went to tho Keeloy
Institute and got cured two yeart
ago and f havo never drank anv
sincMthen Ho asked me
I had had any thing to drink
morning and I told Lim that I
had not He went in to his house
and brought me out a two ounca
bottle full of whiskoy ono that he
had brought from Dwight you all
know the sizo and wanted mo to
drink it but 1 thought it was a
keep sake and would not then he
asked mo if 1 would not go to
Dwijht I told him that I would
go any place if 1 thought it vonld
do mo any good but in my caso I
did not think
that thoro was any
cuio for me tor 1 had trud b
miuy times and every time J
would get good and sober I wouh
bo good nnd drunk and I told him
that I did not have any money to
go any place with Ko said that
if I would go he would furnish
the mouoy or got it for me Ht
told me to go ovf r homo and he
would come and see mo in a short
time and it was only about an
hour until ho came to m house
and handed mo a half Dint bottle
full of whisky and told me that
the money was ready for me and
that iio would uo with n TTJo
hurry was to get me away while I
wuh in ice otion l v as ready
for I had got moro whisky as soon
as I found that I had some friends
left 1 bade my wife and boy
goodbye and left a home that had
been miserable for the last ten or
fifteen years all on account of my
drinking whisky
When we got on thotruiu I nev
er remembered Tliou I began
to realize whero I was wo wero
Humming along toward Dwight
My thoughts began to work 1
thought that when I got to Dwight
that if it did not sua mo that 1
wouianotsay anything but just
jump mo nrst train nnd leave for
parts unknown and that I never
would go back to Missouri for I
had disgraced myself and my fam
ily and did not car what becamo
of me I thought my boy was
yery near jjiuwn Wil thut he
Would take uaro of his mnllmr
anlif Idied drnuk that it would
not mako any differenco
When wo got to Streator tho
fire- flii li r - I---
D iuuij uufiLUiy inenu lid was
to get mo a drink of whisky Of
course that made mo dry and 1
slipped up and got a half pint
and we boarded the C A train
for Dwight 1 arrived pretty well
loaded and thought that there
wero a great inanv nonnln tlnt
stood around tho depot I did
not know that they woi j all there
for tho same purpose that I was
coming for Wo wnnt over to ihe
Labratory The first man we met
was ui blame Ho treated us so
nicely that it put me to thinking
Next 1 met that good old gentle
man Dr Keeley aud mv fnond
arranged with them for mo to
take a four weeks treatment
Then ho took mo up to the Treat
ment Hall and Br Brown gave
me my first shot aud then a bottle
of whisky It was just before the
12 oclock treatment
and un
friend told me to wait so 1 nnni
seehow I would hava to perform
at 5 oclock I tell you when they
began to form in
line I was sur
prised to see tho class of men who
were in Dwight to bn nn wi n
drunkenness I thought that if
iuo lveoiey euro was a humbug
that there was many a smart look
ing man being humbugged and it
made me think there whs a chance
tor mo to straighten
man once more
My friend left
tram and right there I made up
my mind to take tho full benefit of
tho cure I had hardly over failed
to do uuy thine I had over undr
takon I had mado a auccostful
drunkard and I thought I might
mako it successful reformer and
at 5 oclock I fell right in lino and
I nover lniesed a shot nor a doBe
of medicino
On tho 31st of October I drank
my last whiskey and I have never
folfc ua though 1 wanted any aiuce
that time and before I went to
Dwight i had drank whiskey
Btruight for 23 years and in as
many stateB as 1 had yearn I was
always strong and could command
good wngeB and had a good trado
but my earnings ulwoyB went to
tho Baloon keeper or to a sly drug
Btoro And now with Keeley euro
to start with and God helping mo
and my own will power I will nev
er drink another drop of intoxi
cating bevorago while I live and
hope that all mankind will follow
my exuinplo When I stopped oM
the train at homo tho first man to
meet mo wus W F Dawdy the
man that took mo to Dwight He
was just us woll pleused to sgo m6
as though I had beou hia own
brother It was strange that he
took suck un interest in me for
he has only been acquainted with
me about twelve months He
says tho way that I can repay him
ia to tako an interest in some man
chat was ob unfortunate as I was
Some of tho other boys wus at the
train to meet mo They were all
very glad to boo me
But just one block from tho
dopot theio was a little woman
standing just where I had left hjr
1 weeks before with her arms
stretched out to welcome mo home
Sho had a splendid dinuer all
ready for mo and of course I whs
ready for tho dinner My wifo did
not eat much dinger for tibe wau
busy taking n survey of mi and
sizing mo up to make sure th t I
was tho same identical old drunk
aid that Bhe had been living with
for tho past ninoteon years
After dinner she kept edging
around in front of mo to see
tvhethor she could detecf any
signB of whiskey Finally she
Woll John what in the world
did they do to you over at
I told her that thoy did nothing
vory bad mit sho said that 1
had changed so much I told her
that if sho would bustle cut and
associate with iib good society as I
had been in for tho labt foar
weoks Ibr t iBho would change an
much as 1 had My boy was woll
pleased aud the neighbors all
camoin and wehad a regular jolli
fication I did not know whether
j was going to oo married over
again or whether I was just sobber
ingup from a ton years drunk bnt
1 don t think I ever felt so good
and so bad both at the same timo
before in my life
Well I haye got my old position
back and all tho men in the ohop
are pleased to think that I am
going to be a sober man My head
is clear my hand Is steady BDd
thank God I am a man once more
My family is happy my neighbors
all Hay that they aro all so glrd
they will never see Scott go
staggering home again Our
Marshall here says that he hp8
got a big job oM hia hands by my
becoming a sober man
iTow gentlemen I hope that I
have not tired you by trying in my
teeoio way to tell you how J feel
Iheie are some of you there that
remember mo yet and I would
like to have you all write to me
May God ppeed you all with your
now undertaking and I wish vou
a bright and prosperous future
