WILLIE WESTINGHOUSE'S AUTOMATIC CLOCK-WINDER
Dear Tommy Papa has an antique clock in his office so high that he has
to stand on a chair to wind it
i fixed up a scheme to wind it by a belt run by an electric fan.

Papa held the key while I started the fan.
IT commenced to wind all right
But it began to shake the clock, and I tried to stop the fan.
I couldn't, and it whirled all the insides out of the dock. Yours, Willie.
