Dear Mr. Bishop:
This will acknowledge your letter of February 12th.
We think smoking is a pleasant an enjoyable pastime. Mr. Kaiser smokes cigars; Mr. Frazer smokes cigars; I smoke cigars, cigarettes and a pipe. Winston Churchill smokes cigars; our great President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, smoked cigarettes.
All the great men of the world, including General Grant, were smokers. Why don’t you put your feet in front of the fire some night and light up your pipe and find how much it relaxes you?
O. B. Motter
