Carrying the Message

What is a Grapevine?

Well, it finally happened.

As a seaman I spend my vacation in the U.S.A. going from meeting to meeting collecting literature for my friends overseas. Recently, at a meeting I made the usual pitch for "Grapevines, books and old literature."

"What, may I ask," said the chairman, "is a Grapevine?"

This was my first meeting anywhere that they didn't know what a Grapevine is! Now, I am wondering: perhaps I can be of use in the hinterlands back in the "Old Country" (U.S.A.)!
