NOTICE. To the next Burglar.
There is nothing but plated ware in this house, now and henceforth.
You will find it in that brass thing in the dining-room over in the corner by the basket of kittens.
If you want the basket, put the kittens in the brass thing. Do not make a noise–it disturbs the family.
You will find rubbers in the front hall, by that thing which has the umbrellas in it, chiffonier, I think they call it, or pergola, or something like that.
Please close the door when you go away!
Very truly yours
