Title

Letter to the Becker Brewing and Malting Company from the Fred J. Rieger and Company (1 of 2), 1917

Description

This letter from Fred J. Rieger, a Salt Lake City whole sale liquor dealer, to the Becker Brewing and Malting Company complains about the state required renewal of liquor licenses on July 30, 1917, even though all alcohol will be banned in Utah just two days later. Prohibition in Utah began on August 1, 1917 as stipulated by the Young Prohibition Bill, which was passed in the Utah state legislature earlier that year. The letter also reveals the urgency felt by those in the liquor business. The letter, rather frantically, implores the Becker's to write their state congressmen and senators as soon as possible and request that this issue of the licenses be resolved.
