Greetings ***,

Perhaps you have heard of me and my nationwide campaign in the cause of temperance. Each year, for the past fourteen years, I have made a tour of Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Florida and Southern Georgia, delivering a series of lectures on the evils of drinking. On this tour, I have been accompanied by a young friend and assistant, Clyde Lindstrome. Clyde, a young man of good family and excellent background, is a pathetic example of a life ruined by over indulgence in whiskey and women.

Clyde would appear with me at the lectures and sit on the platform, wheezing and staring at the audience through bleary bloodshot eyes, sweating profusely, picking his nose, passing gas, and making obscene gestures at the congregation, while I would point him out as an example of what over indulgence can do to a person.

Last fall, unfortunately, Clyde died. A mutual friend has given me your name, ***, and I wonder if you would be available to take Clyde's place for the remainder of my 1997-98 tour?

Please respond to the above address. Thank you very much.

Reverend Elton Jones
