Letters To The Editor

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 September 2012



Bailey And Cox Family
Info. Appreciated

Dear Editor:
I wish to thank the reader who has twice sent me information, upon request, regarding the Bailey and Cox families. The response was anonymous, and I wanted the reader to know that I really appreciated the information.

Explorer Staff Like Family
Dear Editor:
I think of the staff of The Kentucky Explorer as my Kentucky family. I'm a native of South Louisville.
Through "our" magazine I have friends all over the state.
I would like to see more information on the Millville area, located near Frankfort, Kentucky. The old distilleries looked scary.

Will Never Forget
My Kentucky Home

Dear Editor:
I still read and thoroughly enjoy The Kentucky Explorer.
I turned 89 on June 22, 2002. I had a triple bypass and am a diabetic, but I still can do things on my own, thanks to our God.
I read about cane-bottom chairs in a recent issue of The Explorer. My dad used hickory bark, too. We also had a bench made of pine. There were 14 of us in the family.
I have a 94-year-old brother, Horace Harrod, who lives at Crest-wood, Oldham County, Kentucky, and a sister, Helen, who lives in Shelbyville, Shelby County, Kentucky.
I am in the Sunshine State enjoying life at its fullest. I will never forget my old Kentucky home.
Keep up the good work.

"Cousin Emmy"
Dear Editor:
I would appreciate hearing from readers if they have memories of meeting or attending performances by Cynthia May Carter who performed as "Cousin Emmy." She was quite popular in the 1930s and 1940s and appeared in two movies, Swing in the Saddle and The Second Greatest Sex.
I will be happy to refund postage costs, if readers wish to contact me.
