    I am so used to seeing the U dropped out of a lot of words.

    Sorry about that. I'll just go and sulk in a corner now.

    You are forgiven! All in jest!!!

    Dear Mr. Cleveland;

    Considering the present condition... are you able to vote in November?

    Would you mind giving my neighboUrs to the south some insight as to your choice of candidate?

    Best Regards

    Special to the New York Times.

    "...the message was sent in on Dec. 17. It sent a thrill through the civilized world. It read, as every one thought, like an invitation to war. The stock markets were affected, panics threatened. Men of great, good judgement believed that Mr. Cleveland had made a fatal error and prepared to do their utmost to avert a catastrophe.
    It proved, however, that Mr. Cleveland had understood the case far better than they, and that the message was in reality a message of peace. Prompt and vigorous action had been the one thing needed, and Mr. Cleveland, it has since been conceded, had taken just the right step. Instead of drifting slowly but steadily into war, the two countries were brought to a sudden halt and brought face to face with the hard, cold facts of the case, bluntly stated. Negotiations followed and then arbitration. Cleveland had prevented war and he had established the supremacy of the Monroe Doctrine.

    Ah! Now I remember. Grover is that dome-headed blue guy. Oscar is the green guy. You're right on the money. Ok. Back to work for me. Until Game 7 with the Sox/Yankee's tonight of course.
