1912 Library, Evanston, Illinois

[LIB9174] Apparently the sender was having a better time than ever and "I have plenty of money."

You've got to love this one: “Book mutilation in Evanston. The authorities of the Evanston Public Library are looking for a man who has a mania for destroying valuable books. Within a week several volumes have been mutilated by a red hot instrument run through the pages. From the atlases maps have disappeared. Serialized works have also suffered. The Council passed a new ordinance making the punishment more severe.” --Times Herald [Website]
