1p., 8vo. Photocopied in black on light-green paper. In fair condition, creased and lightly-aged. Small photograph of Paul Harvey beside the title, above the following introduction: 'In a recent column Mr. Harvey, a noted commentator and journalist, strongly defended the law enforcement officer. With his permission the Bulletin reprints this message which we think will be of interest to our readers.' Harvey's piece, reproduced over three columns, begins: 'Don't credit me with this mongrel prose; it has many parents; at least 420,000 of them: Policemen. | A policeman is a composite of what all men are, a mingling of saint and sinner, dust and deity.' Harvey, whose father was a policeman murdered when he was two years old, and who counted J. Edgar Hoover among his friends, wrote this piece at least as early as 1963.
