When I was here two weeks ago My life was made a torture By one whose name I must forego To mention -- She's a scorcher." 1 page on lined notebook paper with a clipping, glued to the paper, of a washerwoman in a blouse and dress, carrying a basket of laundry with a black square in place of her head. 6.5 x 7.5 inches.
