Summary of Content: Hicks was convicted of sending ”unmailable matter” (i.e., abortion materials, possibly a violation of the Comstock Law) through the mail by the U.S. District Court of Southern New York. He was sentenced to ten months in Kings County Penitentiary, Brooklyn, New York and to pay a $1,000 fine. He fled the country, but returned in 1915 to serve his sentence. Wilson commuted his sentence (see also GLC 230.06) and Coolidge pardons him to restore his civil rights because ”since his release he has conducted himself in an exemplary manner.” Countersigned by William D. Mitchell. Printed document with blanks filled in with type.
