Trashball 072807: Satisfactory Binders

I am completely enamored of the politeness shown in this 1937 letter, all for the banal purpose of ordering new binders for the writer's collection of Readers Digest magazines. A little stiff, a little formal, but entirely charming. Plus, the writer saved a carbon copy of the letter for his records!

Recovered from a Washington, DC, estate before it went to the dump.

Hey that's a neat letter. I wonder if he ever got his binders. Nowadays you can just make your own binder but not in 1937! And an odd note about me, my birthday is March 7th! I was born in 1982 though thank goodness.
