Queer Epistle

Post by Karen on Wed 7 Mar 2012 - 20:33

Being a Linen Collar Folded and Addressed.

Ed Farrell, the clerk of the Legislature at Sacramento, has a large fund of practical humor in his political brain. He it was who, when Sam Jones, the evangelist, was in Sacramento let out the presumed fact that the Rev. Jones lost $40 in a game of poker one night, and that Rev. Jones sent him a challenge to fight a duel. The other day John Millzner, a salesman in the White House Clothing Company, received a peculiar epistle through the mails in the shape of a collar folded without any covering. It was tied through the button-holes with a yellow cigar ribbon. The address was written in ink, and a postage stamp stuck on one end. On the inside are a number of hieroglyphics and the words, "There's only a few of us left. Friend John, let me sit down. My foot is in my shoes."
