No, it isn’t
our maiden speech as an independent magazine. After all, we are almost
two years old.
There is at

getting some input from younger readers — in addition, of course, to
that of our regular “seasoned” contributors.
quick New Year’s suggestion: let’s make a special effort to get
our mag into the hands of the literate young too. It might well turn
out that they and “the old and the restful” have in common more
than a few close enthusiasms of the quiet kind.
So spread the
word among your kids and grandkids, your students, your patients, your
customers . . . Then, if the idea appeals, copies can be rushed to
your eager young converts’ doors.
