Each month, The Kentucky
Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from
our faithful readers. Among those letters we often find queries,
ranging from requests for words to songs and poems to trying
to locate former classmates and military buddies of long ago.
Here are a few queries from April
I would like to request a recipe for salt-rising bread from the
readers of The Kentucky Explorer.

Words To Songs
There are three songs/poems I'd like to obtain the words for.
The first goes "Forgive me Lord and try me one more time."
The other two I learned in grade school. One is called September
and starts out, "The goldenrod is yellow." The other
song is about the wind and a few of the words are "when
the wind is from the west, the trees and flowers grow the best."
If anyone can send me the words or music for any of the requests,
I would appreciate it very much.
It is wonderful the way the readers of The Kentucky Explorer
seem to want to help others.
