F.W. Chesson Esq.


        I am sorry to intrude
on your valuable time again
but I will be very brief.
I have been employed tempor-
for a few weeks as a
messenger & I now am sure
I could get a promotion as
clerk if I could only get
a decent suit of clothes.
"a cast off" one from any
0002<This page is blank in the original manuscript.>
of your friends would do.
Please do your best for me
& I'll be very grateful.

Yrs respectfully
                W. I. Craft

P.S. An early answer will oblige
