|To the editor:
Hello, my name is Max Herschel. I am a fifth grader at Napa Valley Language Academy in Napa, California. The reason I am writing to you is that my class is doing state reports and I have chosen the magnificent state of Missouri. I would really like it if you posted my letter in your newspaper so that I could get all the help I need for my report. What I need from you or your readers are pamphlets, postcards, souvenirs or anything else that would be useful.
I will be writing about your state's agriculture, history, economy, famous people, events, historical figures and national parks. I will also be doing an oral report, poster and Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.
Thank you for your support and help in making me a great researcher of your astounding state.
Max Herschel, Napa Valley Language Academy, c/o Mr. Moreno, 2700 Kilburn Ave., Napa, CA 94558
