A formal request for a fro-yo sample during the Great Depression, June 11, 1930

Children under the age of 12 are not allowed any samples at all.

Children under the age of 12 are not allowed any samples at all.

Dear Mr. Yitzhak Goodman, Manager, 3 Handles,

In keeping with the policies of this establishment (3 Handles, Broome Street), I would like to respectfully request a sample of chocolate-flavored frozen yogurt. Said sample will be equal to or greater than 1 ounce but not exceeding 2 ounces. It will be sent directly to my home (99 Delancey Street, #19A) in four to six weeks of 3 Handles receiving this request, barring any unforeseen milk shortages.

After tasting said sample, I will dispose of the small paper cup in the proper garbage receptacle. I will not abuse the free sample policy by requesting a second free sample of any flavor, by disguising myself or by sending a friend. I shall purchase a frozen yogurt of any flavor of my choosing within one week of tasting my sample, as I understand there is no such thing as a free fro-yo sample.

So help me God.

Leonard Isakov
