Blytheville, Ark., July 14 Mr. Harry Fritiius City Dear Mr. Fritiius:—A group of friends who read your weekly letters in the Courier feel that nothing wo read anywhere gives facts that every man, woman and child should know, as clearly or as fearlessly and as understandable as you do. We have talked with others in almost every walk of life and almost every one we talk with feel thcsamc as we do. Many read your letters who, as a rule, do not read the editorials. We feel that you ought to write more, but we know that you arc spending more money now in order to get these facts before the people than most people would. We know that you have a good business and all ot us buy everything we can at your store. Wo want you to know that we enjoy trading, with you too. We don't believe that there is another merchant in town who docs more for his customers than you do. We also want to thank you for getting good things that we can't buy anywhere else. We believe that you arc a square shooter and do just what you say you will. Well, to get down to cases we have talked this thing over and we feel that as Americans we want to help you pay for more of these letters. They have made up fifty dollars ($50.00) and have asked me to write you this letter and send you this money to use to write an extra letter or two about anything you want to. >Now let me explain why we are not signing our names. We had intended to sign them and arc not afraid to. Here's why we didn't. We discussed the matter and some were afraid you wouldn't keep the money. This way I would like to sec you return it. We want you to know though that if the time ever comes when you want us to stand and bo counted as you said in one of your letters, you can count on every single one of us and a whole lot of our friends, too! We all want to take this means of again saying "thank you" and may God bless you. We will sign this poorly written letter simply A group of American Citizens who love America and most of us served in the last war or the First World War as I did. .The Momliiy's "l''nnn IMo to You" li-llcr wilt be (U'diritU'd lo (he yrmip of American cili/cns who wrote (he aliove letter and pinned it to two ^ood American Twenty Dollar Kills and one on.

You need not ha\e hesitated to sipi your names —1 wouldn't have returned (he monev. No—there is too much that needs saying nnd NOW. If people like this Kiotip of ex-service men and others will read those letters and feel thai Ihey are worth while lo the extent I hat they are willing lo l*ay for them voluntarily, I assure you that every cent will he spent for space IN ADDITION TO THAT USKI) NOitiMAL- LY IN MY WKKKLY AD. 1 also pledge thai I'll write just as much in my rcRtilnr From Me lo Yon letter as (he old hud^c! will allow. May 1 say a.s you have, a simple THANK YOU to i< uroup of buddies who have thine more than K an ex Ira column or so printed. You have encouraged your writer more than you will ever know!
