Ms. Cochran was the Lincoln County superintendent of schools, and wife of Nebraska Governor Robert Leroy Cochran. The letter starts: "My dear Bishop, I was very happy to receive your recent letter and have waited until I could write you a personal note to reply. My husband feels that the liquor question is one of the most serious problems with which he has to deal during his administration. It never has been and probably never will be handled in an entirely satisfactory manner but he is going to do the best he can. " Nebraska had repealed Prohibition shortly before the letter was written. A date, apparently penned from a different hand, is written on the bottom left of the last page. Fine. ; Letters.

However, I am pleased to meet your expectations and wants at no exceptional discount to speak of. Trusting you and yours are [illegible] in your works and ideals. I am, yours sincerely, Geo. E. Littlefield" Written on a sheet of Fellowship Farm/Ariel Press letterhead, with blurbs advertising the ideals and functions of each part of the organization printed down the left-hand side of the paper.
