You go up to that place, ring the bell, and give this card 
to the guy that comes to the door. Just tell him Al sent 
you, and he'll fix you up.

You're no crabber or piker-I can seen that. You go to 
the North Star. Tell Frank that Jakey sent you. They'll 
treat you white. You be sure and say Jakey sent you; but 
for Gawd's sake keep out of the Big Tent!

Jack Doran and the othe boys are down at Tom Murphy's barn 
... go to 'em; say I sent you; say you were spakin' a bit to me,
an' tell 'em the same words I tould you.
