You have all heard about Robert you know, he was an expert on Freaks and spent his lifetime gathering together the most outstanding human curiosities from all over the world.


For many years this young man was the feature attraction with Robert Ripley.  And during the years....Ripley and X became the closet of friends.


Ripley became so attached to X that he made provisions in his will to card for him the balance of his lifetime.  He did this in the form or printing plates...No...Not for a famous book about Robert Ripley.... during the lifetime of Ripley he became famous for his endeavors to find the most unusual....not  only people, but things as well.  One of Ripley's most prized possessions was the plates for the printing of the smallest bible in the world.


In his will, Ripley left X these plates....because Ripley knew that as long as X had these plates, he would never go hungry as long as he lived.


I'm certain that it goes without saying that you all understand that X could never serve you food in a restaurant, he could never fill your gas tank at the service station, and you would never buy insurance from him....the only type of work he can obtain is by exhibiting himself a freak show.


X receives no salary for being in this show.  Instead, the manager of the show....allows X the privilege of offering to the audience, for a few minutes, once during each and every performance, the privilege of offering for sale, a copy of the world's smallest bible, made from the original plates Robert L. Ripley left X in his will.


The cost of printing these little bibles is about 21....binding, postage, complete... offers them to you for sale for 25c....the four pennies is change over and shows the cost is his profit...the money he lives on all year around....without others having purchased these
