URGENT BULLETIN

Instances of petty theft in Chichesterton-Upon-Hogmill have been remarked upon by our readers for a second fortnight.

Be so kind as to report to the Constabulary the presence of any persons of dubious aspect, howsoever benign-seeming, whom you may spy lurking about in public spaces.

Make no mistake: A “mother” dandling her infant may disguise a larcenous proclivity endemic, be it said in passing, to the inferior classes. Monitor your servants for unaccustomed bedizenment betokening an unearned windfall. The fair wages you pay do not support frippery.

Vigilance, Eminent Citizens! It’s the cross that privilege bears.

Faithfully,
Your Editor

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day, and watch Netflix and Prime Video for entertainment. I like to read and memorize poetry.
