Thank you so much for printing Allison Bigelow's article on hemp. She is
one of a few people that are willing to spread this knowledge. It appears
that your newspaper is willing as well.

Hemp has an enormous future potential. Henry Ford knew it, Thomas Jefferson
knew it, George Washington knew it and now all your readers know it too. It
is too valuable to waste and if we remain ignorant we will not be able to
compete. Germany is at least five years ahead of us.  Thank you again for
your time.
