It has been suggested that a subscription be started with
a view of accumulating a fund for the purpose of erecting a monument to
our late martyred President William McKinley, in his cemetery lot at
Canton, Ohio. Judge Day of that City has been spoken of as president
of such a movement. In no way is it possible to raise an amount of
money for such a movement so quickly as by the chain system.
Will you therefore kindly send 10¢ with this letter to Judge William
Day at Canton, Ohio., writing three extra copies of this letter, signing
your name, numbering each one of them just one higher than this, which
is number fourteen, sending same to three of your friends requesting
them to interest themselves in this worthy movement. Do not break the chain.
If you have already received one of these letters return this one to me.
F. P. Copper
R.R. to Mr. F. P. Copper,
Please Kindly count me out
on this chain and very much oblige
