In Clumsy Pursuit of the Welfare State
[ Forwarded by Drudge-Pudding ]
Please find out if my
husband is dead as the man I am now living with wonít do anything until
he is sure.
In reply to your letter, I
have already co-habited with your officer, so far nothing has happened.
In accordance with your
instructions, I have given birth to twins in the enclosed envelope.
Please send some money as I
have fallen into errors with my landlord.
I am writing to tell you
that my baby was born two years ago and he is two years old. When do I get
I canít get sick pay. I have
nine children. Can you tell me why this is?
Sir, I am forwarding my
marriage certificate and my two children, one is a mistake as you can see.
I am annoyed to find out
that you branded my children illiterate. Oh! the shame of it! ó it is a
dirty trick as I married their father a week before they were born.
Unless I get my husbandís
money soon, I will be forced to lead an immortal life.
I want my money as quick as
I can get it. I have been in bed with the doctor for two weeks and he
doesnít seem to be doing me any good. If things donít improve, I will send
for another doctor.
