Wants Baby Sent By Mail

I don’t know about you all, but I send all my babies by stork. But some people have different ideas:

“Sir: I have been corresponding with a party in Pa about getting a baby to rais (sic) (our home being without One.) May I ask you what specifications to use in wrapping so it (baby) would comply with regulations and be allowed shipment by parcel post as the express co are to rough in handling. Yours”

    Not sure how to comment on this one, John! UNREAL. And the intended recipient thought they would be capable of raising said baby? Yikes! Poor baby!
