Writing of Stillmeadow Sampler, Gladys Taber says:
This book is really a letter to my friends, especially those I have never seen or met... Every day of living on my forty acres in New England seems to bring forth something I wish to share, so I write it down.
I could use exactly these words about the "letters" I write in this blog. I'm taking the occasion of the 1000th letter, to offer a present to one of my dear readers. I am going to buy someone a book by Gladys Taber. It probably won't be new because it is almost impossible to find new editions. It doesn't matter where you live. If your name is drawn, and you live overseas, I'll happily send it to you.
