LETTER FROM "BEN HOPE" . I e
TO ALL OF HIS FRIENDS j
Asks Them to Buy His New Book I
That Will Soon Be Published ^
Editor Herald and News:
This is a frank, sincere,?urgent ap- ]
peal to your readers?to every one i
who may read it?for help to make t
my latest venture a success. I am j
going to have a new book published,
and I want advance orders for the t
book. It will be a book of funny r
stories and notes and comments on ' Y
timely topic?my very best work. I.
purpose to sell this book for 25 cents
a copy, or 5 copies for SI. I am a
poor, self-educated shut-in. e
Now, you. readers, can help me in c
th's way: For every dollar which I
receive now I will send out 5 copies v
of my new book, which will be ready,
for distriDution just as suun ^u?ible.
I do not wish to have it pub-1
lished, however, until I have received ^
at least $100 in advance orders for it.' .
So send me your orders now, before !
you forget it. You may, of^ course, i ^
order any number of copies you may ;
want; but I suggest that each and , ^
every one of my friends and helpers j
get at least four of their friends to '
"chip in" with 20 cents each, and j
thus send me a dollar order. This
appeal may not appear in this paper
Remember I can not go to you with
with book; you must come to me. And ,
so please send me your orders now. j
The object I have in putting this
book on the market is to improve my <
condition financially?and otherwise.,(
I hope to be enabled to buy a home j *
with the proceeds of my writings, a :
home in which I could have all the .
comforts which I need and a study in !
which to write. And this surely is a j
