by Jack London (1876-1916)
1913 

CHAPTER I 

It all came to me one election day.  It was on a warm California
afternoon, and I had ridden down into the Valley of the Moon from
the ranch to the little village to vote Yes and No to a host of
proposed amendments to the Constitution of the State of
California.  Because of the warmth of the day I had had several
drinks before casting my ballot, and divers drinks after casting
it.  Then I had ridden up through the vine-clad hills and rolling
pastures of the ranch, and arrived at the farm-house in time for
another drink and supper. 

"How did you vote on the suffrage amendment?" Charmian asked. 

"I voted for it."
