"I am absolutely delighted to send my renewal for The Star Beacon. Somehow, I've lost track of just how long I've been reading it. I've been reading it totally, from cover to cover, ever since.
I live in a place where not many are interested in such things. Your little paper is all I have to remain connected with what I consider truth.
Here's looking forward to a long experience and knowing truth as is seen by The Star Beacon. Thanks again!"
