Mailbox.I have never lived in Mississippi, but ever since I visited Oxford as Field Secretary from California for Delta Gamma in the mid-1960s, it has held a special place in my heart. When I married my "Mississippi husband" nine years ago, I understood why it had stayed special for such a long time.
I love your magazine and often give it as gifts to friends and relatives who love it as well, whether they have ever been in Mississippi or not! I especially enjoyed Glenda Wadsworth's "Life on the Road" and Kelli Bozeman's editorial comments in the May/June issue. Thank you!

A brief letter of appreciation for your feature article on Kosciusko, my former hometown, and profound gratitude for the generous mentions of our three Delta Gamma founders in your May/June issue. I am Mary Comfort Leonard's grand-daughter, and although I was a child of 8 at her death, I remember vividly her persona.
I was an Alpha Psi member at Ole Miss, as were my daughter-in-law, Lisa Paris, and granddaughter Rachel Marie Paris. We all share that pride that Delta Gamma was founded right here in Mississippi and great pride in our ancestor.

I enjoyed your article on Crystal Springs and its history and tie to the tomato business ("Where in Mississippi is ... Crystal Springs?," May/June). My grandfather, P.T. Johnson, was the local blacksmith, and his motto was, "I can fix anything but a broke man."
I grew up in Crystal Springs and loved every minute of it. The tomato festival was a very big deal back then. Two of my friends, Price Batton and Cliff Thomas, were "little mayors" at the festival. I had the honor to be an alderman ALDERMAN. An officer, generally appointed or elected in towns corporate, or cities, possessing various powers in different places.

I think I am the only one who thinks Crystal Springs was the "tomatropolis" of the world and not the "tomatopolis." Eudora Welty Noun 1. Eudora Welty - United States writer about rural southern life (1909-2001)
Welty , in her Photographs book, has a picture of the giant tomato that used to be on Highway 51, and it is plainly labeled "Tomatropolis."
There was a audible warning at the powerhouse that sounded when frost was predicted. I can't describe the sound other than it rose and fell continuously and it was called the "squeedunk."
Many thanks for the memories.

Thank you for the great article on Yazoo City Yazoo City, city (1990 pop. 12,427), seat of Yazoo co., W central Miss., on the Yazoo River; inc. 1830. It is a trade, processing, and industrial center in a cotton, cattle, and soybean area. Oil is refined, and clothing and fertilizer are manufactured. ("On the Edge of the Delta," March/April). Although I'm from Indiana, I have become fascinated with your state since I saw "My Dog Skip," about the life of author Willie Morris William Weaks "Willie" Morris (November 29, 1934 — August 2, 1999), was an American writer and editor born in Jackson, Mississippi, though his family later moved to Yazoo City, Mississippi, which he immortalized in his works of prose. .

I traveled to Yazoo City three years in a row and have many fond memories of all the places I visited in your state. I can see why Willie loved this place where the hills meet the Delta.
I hope the Gulf Coast will recover to its full glory after Katrina. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Again, thank you for the great article on Yazoo City.

As a child of the South and a native of Jackson, I have delighted in Mississippi Magazine since its inception. Though my husband and I have resided in various states and currently live in Louisiana, we still continue to "think in Mississippi!"
Bless your heart!
