Dear Miss Bergstrom:

As a fan of Frank Sinatra, I know you will be interested in PLATTER CHATTER.

We are enclosing a complimentary copy of the January issue, with his picture on the cover.

PLATTER CHATTER is the new magazine which is sweeping the country. Look it over carefully. Don't you think a year's subscription would be a worthy addition to your club?

And that's not all. With the May issue, we are increasing its size to regular standard 8-1/2" x 11" and featuring more stories, more pictures, more features. In future issues we are starting a new department devoted to fan clubs. Won't you send us some news items and notes on the doings of your club?

Yours very truly,
[signed] W.C. Boswell

W. C. BOSWELL, EDITOR &PUBLISHER
