Each month, The Kentucky Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from our faithful readers. Whenever possible, we try to publish as many of them as possible in the 12 pages we have set aside for "Letters to the Editor."
Here are actual letters from December 2006/January 2007
Old Christmas Recipes Wanted
I really enjoy The Kentucky Explorer magazine and pass it on after I am finished reading each issue.
I am interested in old recipes from the 1800s for Christmas cakes, candies, and puddings.
If any reader has any to share, it would be appreciated.

Reared In Perry County;
Bean Seeds Wanted
I was born and reared at Clemons, Kentucky, just outside of Hazard in Perry County. My parents were Nicholas and Abie Stacy Hensley.
I would like some White Kentucky Wonder Bean seeds, not the brown kind, if any reader has any to share.
If any elderly gentleman would like to write, it sure would be nice for this 84-year-old.

Wonderful Memories Of
Fountain Square Park
When I opened the October 2006 issue of The Kentucky Explorer to page two and saw the feature on Fountain Square Park, it brought back so many wonderful memories.
I was born at Bowling Green, Warren County, Kentucky, in 1941. We lived in a log cabin on the Elm Grove Dairy Farm. My parents took us kids to this park every week. I really enjoyed that fountain.
We moved to California in August 1950. All my family, who lived in Bowling Green, are gone now, and I haven't been there since 1968.
Thanks for the memories.
