PETE, HERE'S WORD FROM THE WQODS!
Certainly slipped on not tipping you that Mr.
Bacon invited me to join his shooting party up here.
Arrived at his Northeast Carry camp at sunset yes
terday. And a riot started before we squared up to the
venison steak! Listen, old bull pup my tale's short!
Bleak Nixon, chief guide, while unpacking, made .
the terrible discovery that all the Camel cigarette
supplies had been swiped in transit! Never heard
such a howl as the whole outfit set up! Nixon swore
in Indianl-plus-Canuck! Just wouldn't be pacified!
' BIeakss been rooting for Camels since November, 1915;
Says there never vas such smoothness, or refreshing
flavor, or mild body in a cigarette as Camels provide!
(Pete, Bleak is O. K. on that). While the row was on
what docs Nixon do but hop into his canoe and disap
pear into the depths of the dark, dank night!
About three this morning there was a roar such as
no min ever heard in the wild woods! It was Nixon
yelling like a double-decked bull moose! That bird
had crossed the lake, picked up a trail and beat it to a
little way-br.ck store where he got the boss out of bed
and made him come across with all the Camels he had.
The storekeeper kicked like a handfull of aces but,
Bleak always gets what he goes after! It's the nerve,
old tooth! And, now we're all filled with the milk
of human kindness and Camel contentment! We'll
Peter, think of digging up a bunch of Camels in the
depth of Maine's densest woods! And, that's the way
it is all over the U. S. A.! You're never out of luck
when you smoke Camelu ! Peter, old hub, I've spoke
as the cook' puts it!
Back in New York well, soon!
