I have felt a fan letter coming on for years, so at long last here it is. I have been getting A MERICAN H ERITAGE since the beginning and I have never subscribed to anything that has given me more pleasure. One of the best things is the clarity with which the stories are written. Everything is so readable and clear. No academics writing for other academics, which is so often the case in other publications. And this is the only magazine in which I read and thoroughly enjoy the Letter From the Editor. End of fan letter, and carry on!
