Abstract : We prove that when correlations in an equilibrium classical system in v-dimensions, v greater than or equal, containing charges decay faster than (distance)-(l+v) then the charge cloud surrounding particles has no multipole moments of order k less than or equal. This yields l+1 sum rules with 1 equal infinity when the decay is exponential. This extends previous results for 1 less than or equal 2 sum rules and also generalizes them to systems containing fixed dipoles (or higher multipoles). Some consequences are described.
