Dear Sir,

I have a newly minted Shilling and quite a hunger for sausage. May I inquire as to where I might purchase said excellent sausages of the 35th. There is no address given for the Butcher Skorka - perhaps you could forward it to me at Cabin 23, HMS Jersey, Wallabout Bay, New York.

Yours Sincerely
Pvte John Smith

There was a Battoe of the Fleet
whose Story you now know complete:
how we romped through the King's Land
and they cashiered the Bat-man
of His Majesty's Captain van Vliet!
