A Letter to the First Year Blokes

A Letter to the First Year Blokes

R. D. Smith has for sale books, contained in a literary palace of infectious delights.

English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Hebrew, Chaldee, Maori, Greek, Latin, Hindoo, and Gaelic; I won't say we have them, but we will buy them.

School Books, Voyages, Travels, Arts, Scientific, Novels.

We once employed the Dewey System of Classification—Now browse-Prayer Books for Saints, Play Books for Sinners. Calvin and Comic Books. Wesley and Tom Paine, Voltaire and Cummins. Luther and Robert Owen, Sermons and Song Books, Medical Minerological, Mathematical and Quizzical. Orthodox and Heretical.

If we have not, have you? We'll buy . . .

No tokens taken. We never sell stamps and won't take them as payment for literary treasures.

To oblige under paid Students and members of the Faculty, short of cash and ideas—fresh eggs and good butter, perhaps taken in barter to a limited extent.

Don't prate of paltry gold rushes, or of individual, cash abundant. Political Ideals—enrich your minds—rush and buy books of Smith's or lacking a rich uncle, here, rush and sell.

With apologies and yours faithfully.
