Issue: September, 1985
I would like to renew my parents' and my subscription to The Mountain Laurel.
I have especially enjoyed reading Elizabeth's Journal. It's such a shame most of the young people today are not interested in such descriptive writing of a young girl more than a century ago. The Cooley's have contributed a great deal to all your readers by letting us share in their history.
We enjoy your articles on crafts and "old-timey" recipes. I would enjoy seeing more stories from some of our senior citizens on their childhood and growing up in the mountains.
Thank you all so much for a thoroughly enjoyable magazine.
Winston Salem, NC
Would you please send me your special 32 page collection of the Backroads Tours. I have enclosed $2.75.
My husband and I try to get away once a month, just to take your tour. We have very busy careers, and really enjoy our mountain tours and getting away. You help to show us a very special way of enjoying nature.
Dear Mountain Laurel:
Just received my first issue (July, 1985). Your paper is excellent. I read every word and am looking forward to next month's. I live near the ocean, but the mountains have my heart. It was like receiving a bundle of love letters from that special someone.
