Trapped inside with autographs, books, posters and papers, Brian Leno drops a note to say:
“I’ve been digging like a gopher through my stuff and found something I didn’t know I have.
“It’s a postcard of the ‘champion tramp of the world’ A No. 1.
“The back is pretty cool:
Preserve this card, circumstances might force you to become a homeless tramp. Should you meet me, this card will be good for a square meal, if I am not dead-broke myself.

Be sure to read my book, a true story of my wanderings and hardships all over the known world. “Life and Adventures of A No 1.” Thrilling from cover to cover. Illustrated. Price 25 cents. At all news stands.
“If I ever become a down-and-out bum,” mulls Leno, “there is hope, I guess.”
