Letters to the Editor
Regarding yesterday's issue: The gimlet with the lady pulling her boots on could have been to bore holes in leather straps for a good fit, e.g. straps that the sword hung from, etc.

The only gimlet that I have run across as of recent looks nothing like a corkscrew:
- 1 1/2 oz Vodka
- 1 oz Lime Juice
- 1 tsp Powdered Sugar
Shake with ice and strain into a glass.

Wirtz, Virginia - The card below is entitled A Humorist in France: A Miscellaneous Market. Is the flea marketer selling a corkscrew or a gimlet?
Wirtz, Virginia - The Early Victorian Humour postcard below copy is: "Early Victorian Humour"
"How much longer are you agoin to be there, Betty?"
"I can't make no more haste, M'am. There's somethin' got into the what's-o'name and the thing-a-me-bog won't run into the what-ye call it!"
Nope, not a gimlet, she's pulled the tap out of the barrel.
