Throughout the City small groups of urchins could be seen hurrying along, dragging large crates on buggys, sleds and other makeshift trolleys. At main thoroughfares, squares and buildings a crate would be left, along with an urchin armed with a glass windowed hood, a whistle and a small prybar. Anyone passing was handed a notice, and more notices were pushed into letterboxes or under doors…..
Cus of unforseen difficulties, there may be a bit of a problem with poison gas. If you see urchins running through the streets with gasmasks on an hear whistles being blown, please put on yor free gas hood an don’t take it off till you hear the all clear. It’ll be rattles, probably.
Do not panic, stay calm, it probably won’t happen.
