HA Drunkard Redeemedere are the first two paragraphs from the tract:  There is a true story about a man who was born into a family of seven and, as fate would have it, the father was a bartender who was reported to drink as much as he served. This boy was Mel Trotter and the year of his birth was 1870 in Orangeville, Illinois. Later, the family moved to Freeport, Illinois where he became a barber and soon afterwards took up the vice of gambling and became a heavy drinker. A few years later he married Lottie Fisher and she was horrified that Mel was a drunkard. Mel would try his best to stay sober but that didn’t last long as he went back to drink. Life became worse and worse as he would leave home for weeks at a time. One time he returned home after a period of being drunk only to learn that his two-year-old, had died. Mel thought he was responsible and so considered suicide. As he stood next to the coffin, he was determined to never drink again but, alas, within two hours he was drunk as a skunk. Leaving home once again, he hopped a train for Chicago and once there he sold the child’s shoes so he could buy another drink. One may ask, “How can a person sink so low as to do that?” Friend, that is what sin can and will do to a person.

Mel Trotter was drunk and shoeless in the snow on a Chicago street when he was encouraged to go into the Pacific Garden Mission {PGM} where he was gloriously saved by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He became active in the Mission and later became director of a rescue mission. Mel Trotter went from being a helpless, hopeless drunkard to become a totally changed man, a change that people still talk about after all these years. You may wonder how that was possible so, if you will, please allow me to briefly explain. . . . . .
