For my favorite Alderman Bob Miller i asked for a new Cape and a razor Sharp sword to assist him in his Battles with the political Quot bulls Quot who would have his Scalp. For Capac prexy Herb guardian of Chatham Fisher i asked for a year round License to ferret out the evils that would invade the Council and the Community.
