Advocacy chain letter. Anti-Prohibition. "... a big price
to bootleggers for bum hooch." "Send this letter to five wet friends."
This is a chain letter to make
the country wet again. The only way to do it is to register and vote. That
is how the reformers jammed prohibition
through. Every voter counts, so see that you are registered and vote
for anything that means a wet United States. Vote against prohibition and
vote in prosperity. Send this letter to five wet friends. If you fail to
keep up the chain no harm will befall you, but you will continue to pay a
big price to bootleggers for "bum hooch."
