JIM: Claim to be made for cash found in front of Harris law firm?

Story from before days Al Gore invented The Interwebs


The notice in today's edition of CM concerning the found money brought to mind a joke even older than I am. Someone placed an ad in the local newspaper (this obviously in the days before Al Gore invented The Interwebs), saying a quantity of money had been found in thus-and-such a place, and that the owner could claim the do-re-me by describing it. A few days later, a letter arrived, stating,
"Dear Sir: You found my money. Here's the description. It's rectangles of good quality green paper, about two-and-a-half by six inches, with numbers in each corner and a picture of a dead president in the middle Please send my money to me at the address below."
