18 U.S. Internal Revenue Service Four forms related to stills.
DC c.1900 
2 items. Here's your chance to fill out these blank forms on one of your disliked acquaintances & embarrass beyond belief; just be sure to use authentic ink. Condition is unused but a few w/age marks, generally v.g. The two forms are #10- "Personal Services", two pp. For Services Rendered as Informer, Posseman, Special Employee Under Internal Revenue Service Laws (the two pp. are slightly different) #192- Report Showing Condition of Fruit Distillery. Large Double folio (p. 1 w/local data, p. 2 & 3 w/report details p. 4 w/jacket data). I see by today's paper that VA maintains its reputation by destruction of a 20 unit 55 gallon each pot still in Craig Co. The judge in the rickety old Fluvanna Co. Courthouse ordered destruction once of 60 glass gallon jars of "receipt." When the sheriff threw the ax back over his shoulder, it knocked a porch pillar loose & porch roof collapsed. "Aha," said a saddened & would-be pickled onlooker, "destroy John Barleycorn & the pillars of justice fall." "Hail, Fluvanna!" "Quick, order these before your neighbor does!" Caution- You might need add'l papers to commence this line of business for yourself. Law. Appalachia. Crime. (3919947585)
