Dear Sirs:

Please send me two copies of the "Backroad Tours." I am sending a check for $5.50.

I saw your paper, The Mountain Laurel, this month for the first time and enjoyed it very much. I had also read "The Man Who Moved a Mountain" so that made the tour more interesting. It is a great book and I recommend it to everyone young and old.

Dear Mountain Laurel:

Thank you for a most informative and entertaining magazine. We tend to forget the past, and it is people like you, who keep it alive.

I especially enjoy Elizabeth's journal.

Dear Publishers:

My husband and I are retired and enjoy taking one day trips especially into the Blue Ridge area.

On such a trip, after reading Tom Sieg's article in the Winston-Salem Journal, we stopped at the Mayberry Trading Post. Miss Addie Wood was there and during our pleasant conversation she asked me if I had read The Mountain Laurel paper. Strangely, I had not and she was very surprised at my ignorance. I purchased a copy from her and after reading it I could hardly wait to subscribe.

My first copy has arrived and we can hardly wait to make some of the "Backroad Tours" you have mentioned. Enclosed is a check for $2.75 for which please send me the special collection of "Backroad Tours" which have appeared in the first 18 issues of The Mountain Laurel.

Thank you for furnishing me such delightful entertainment as I enjoy in reading The Mountain Laurel.

I love the mountains!
