My Dear Sir:
Since reading the MIX MAGAZINE while in Kansas City on my visit, I am interested in becoming an agent in my community. Please send me details relative to this matter at once, as we need such a magazine as MIX in our city.
Very truly,

Editor:
While visiting the U.S.A in August I had the chance to purchase a copy of your MIX MAGAZINE in Tampa, Florida, and if you, at present, do not have any agent to CUBA, I would like full details of your offer to me. I have been a resident of Havana for fifteen years, and to date we haven't an all-pictorial Negro magazine on sale as I know of. Kindly let me hear from you on this matter, and if you accept me as an agent, you may send me 25 copies of your October issue.
Thanking you very kindly,
LAWRENCE KINGSBAY
