Dear Ms Denney

I got this letter back in 1985
Dear Ms. Denney,
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 Florida, and Southern Georgia, as well as Indiana, Illinoise, Michigan and Texas.
On this tour,I have been accompanied by my young friend and assistant, Clyde Lindstone. Clyde, a young man of good family and excellent background is a pathetic example of life ruined by excessive indulgence in liquor and sex!
Clyde would appear with me at the lectures and sit on the platform, wheezing and staring at the audience through bleary eyes, sweating
profusely, picking his nose, passing gas, and making obscene gestures while I would point him out as an example of what over indulgence can do to a person using Devil's brew.
Last April,unfortunately,Clyde died. A mutual friend has given me your name and I was wondering if you could accompany me on my 1985 tour? If you can, please write to me at once. If not, maybe you can recommend one of your friends.
thank you...Rev. Frederick Bond.
Shady had mentioned this letter to me in a email and I had no clue what she was talking about ( I was still drinking in '85..a lot.. so she mailed it to me..and soon as I saw the signiture I recognized my good friend Brian Baleu.. I still don't remember this but Brian passed away a couple of years ago and I will have this to remember him by..and it still makes me laugh
