Blind people don't write letters very often— but we got a lot of fan mall from sighted people who also enjoy the program." nonet Notice fe hereby »lven that the undersigned has tiled with the Commissioner of Revenue* of the BUte of Arkansas lor permit to sell and dispense beer at retail on the premises described as 2nd and Kiln, L«ichville, Mississippi'County.
