Charity (political) chain letter. Partial edited text. Democratic Congressional Committee. US, 1906.

If there was ever a time in the history of the Democratic Party for manifestations of Loyalty & patriotism on the part of members, it is now.
If we are to win a victory & elect a new president two years hence, we must first elect a House of Representatives.
A Democratic House . . . will investigate every department of government, all honeycombed by "graft," edges of which were only touched by recent exposure and prosecution.
It will be a revelation of rottenness that will astound the country.
To win the house . . . we need money. We have no protected monopolies like the Republicans.
Send us $1 and write 3 letters to 3 friends asking them to do the same.

From J.M. Griggs, chairman.
