Dear Friend:

The failure of some of our friends to comply with the law regarding the sale of liquors to minors has jeopardized their character and our reputation. (See red card on table.)

It is our sincere desire to please our patrons; but to do so, we cannot violate the law. The penalty for its violation subjects us to the loss of our license.

IF YOU ARE REQUESTED TO SIGN THE REVERSE SIDE OF THIS CARD, PLEASE DO SO. YOUR COOPERATION WILL BE APPRECIATED.

And in return we will endeavor to do our part by providing you with the best in dance music always.

Sincerely,

Frank Dailey's TERRACE ROOM, Inc.
