There was some debate as to whether this was a hoax or not which I think eventually boiled down to the document was legitimate as of date but in question as to whether coming from the league or from someone with a sense of humor at the time.
I could read part of it, but not the rest. :)
You and RIRedinPA have some good eyesight.
Interesting to know what obscenity was like back then! The old movies about the time make people in that time look so wholesome but you know they weren't, really. Especially the "mother, sister and wife" phrase would be right at home here in Turkey (though it could cause knives to be pulled very quickly) but definitely would be pretty rare in the U.S. today.
