A Prohibition Plea
My husband is in the habit of buying a quart of whiskey every other day from a Chinese bootlegger named Chin Waugh living at 317 Sixteenth near Alder Street.
We need this money for household expenses. Will you please have his place raided? He keeps a supply planted in the garden and a smaller quantity under the back steps for quick delivery. If you make the raid at nine thirty any morning you will be sure to get the goods, and Chin also, as he leaves the house at ten o’clock and may clean up before he goes.
Thanking you in advance.
