[letter typed on letterhead of The American Mercury]
August 21st. 
Dear Brother Cheslock:
My best thanks for sending me the Present Truth. I already receive it regularly, but extra copies, of course, have their uses. I became converted to the Seventh Day Adventists' eschatology months ago, and I am now thinking of reading for holy orders. How people can go about with light hearts in the face of the fact that the end of the world is upon us is more than I can make out.
Sincerely, [signed]H L Mencken
