Thread Name: The Bricklayer's Song
Subject: RE: The Bricklayer's Song
The story goes back at least as far as the mid-1930s--I first encountered it in an old Readers Digest. THe story was that this was a letter to an insurance company, claiming that head had only received a check for one accident while, in reality, he'd had seven. I think that this point got lost, and shouldn't have.
