    INTERESTING REPORT "ON THE POST CANTEEN SALOON" AT FORT WHIPPLE, ARIZONA TERRITORY. Soldiers and officers alike would surely have been unhappy to read Lt. C.E. Dentler's lengthy report concerning the operation and use of the post canteen saloon at Fort Whipple. He assures his superiors that, while the mere presence of a saloon at Fort Whipple is an invitation for men to do evil, it need not be closed. Rather, he recommends that civilians not be allowed to work in the saloon. Penned on 16 sheets of legal-sized paper and bound with metal brads at top, the report includes findings by the Fort commission, Stamps and typed notations on verso of final page, which shows moderate wear; interior pages are fine.
