CHICAGO III 1959

Senator Crandall

DEAR FRIEND, WHOEVER YOU ARE: MY FIRST PACKAGE MET WITH MILD SUCCESS AND RABID INDIFFERENCE. A FEW DISCERNING INDIVIDUALS RECOGNIZED TRUE VALUE AND PUT OUT A HARD EARNED DOLLAR FOR IT. THIS COLLECTION OF PRIZE ITEMS FROM MY SCRAP BOOK IS NO BETTER THAN THE FIRST GROUP. THIS IS CALLED CONSISTANCY. THE TWENTY ONE CARD TRICK is NOT WORTH A DOLLAR BUT ITrS A GOOD EFFECT AND YOU CAN DO IT....AND PROBABLY WILL.

TOO MANY SEVENS is MUCH BETTER. IT HAS ENOUGH SLIGHT OF HAND TO PLEASE THE AVERAGE CARD MAN. IT IS COMMERCIAL AND NOT DIFFICULT TO DO. THE EFFECT IS GOOD AND THE METHOD NOT TOO INVOLVED, THE LECTURE ON PERSEVERANCE is A REWRITTEN VERSION OF A CLASSIC MONOLOG. MY FATHER DID IT MANY YEARS AGO IN STOCK COMPANIES. IT MAY BE PRESENTED STRAIGHT OR HOKED UP, IT WAS ORIGINALLY A SERMON SATIRE BUT PEOPLE HAVE GROWN TOUCHY THRU THE YEARS,SO IT IS NOW A LECTURE, IT'S NOT TOO FUNNY BUT IT'S AMUSING. THE

EYE TEST: THIS IS WORTH THE WHOLE PRICE OF THE PACKAGE. IT

WAS WRITTEN SOME TIME AGO AND I HAVE KEPT IT FROM PRINT BECAUSE IT WAS TOO GOOD TO BE HIDDEN IN THE PAGES OF A MAGAZINE. IF YOU DON'T GET A MILD CHUCKLE OR. A HEARTY LAUGH FROM IT. . .WRITE ME.. AND I WILL REFUND YOUR DOLLAR....WITH EXTREME RELUCTANCE.

THE POST CARD ARTICLE ON THE BACK OF THE EYE TEST is FACTUAL... AND WAS INCLUDED MAINLY TO FILL IN A BLANK PAGE. KlNDRED SOULS, THE WORLD HAS A FEW LEFT, WILL FIND IT AMUSING. THE DOUBLE PICTURE WILL BE A VALUED ADDITION TO THE CLUTTERED WALLS OF YOUR DEN OR HOME BAR, IT IS A STRONG DETERRANT TO EXCESSIVE TIPPLING AND RIBALD GLUTTONY. IT MAY BE FRAMED EASILY IN THE FOLLOWING MANNER: HAVE TWO PIECES OF CLEAR GLASS CUT ABOUT A QUARTER OF AN INCH LARGER THAN THE PICTURE. PLACE THE PICTURE BETWEEN THE TWO PIECES OF GLASS. WLTH MYSTIC TAPE, I~L/2" WIDE BIND THE FOUR EDGES. A PIECE OF HEAVY CORD, ABOUT 18" LONG, MAY BE PLACED ALONG THE TOP EDGE AND FASTENED WITH A STRIP OF TAPE. TIE THE CORD AT THE ENDS AND HANG UP THE DOUBLE PICTURE. AFTER THE FIRST SHOCK OF SEEING THE REGULAR SIDE HAS WORN OFF, SLYLY TURN THE PICTURE AROUND. THIS SHOULD SEND YOUR FREE LOADING GUESTS HOME IN A HURRY, YOU'LL SAVE MUCH MORE THAN THE PRICE OF THIS PACKAGE, IN DRINKS AND FOOD, ALONE, SINCERELY,
