Subject(s): Law & Lawyers; Promiscuity


Well, Lizzie Anderson! seventeen men -- and
the baby hard to find a father for!

What will the good Father in Heaven say
to the local judge if he do not solve this problem?
A little two-pointed smile and -- pouff! --
the law is changed into a mouthful of phrases.
