    Written by an extremely illiterate shady character who links society's feelings of 'hurt' at such problems as being 'garroted o' nites' to the desperate need for food. Wishes the 'guvment' would find him and similar people 'a ticket of leaf—something to do in the collonys on guvment a count', which would be 'cheaper than our garoting and eye-way robery'.
