Dear Marvin:

I would first like to say congratulations on the best damn magazine in the world! I am writing to let you know that I'm a prisoner and enjoyed your premier issue, in fact, I have already read it from cover to cover three times, and since I got the issue I refer back to it everyday about something. I would also like to tell you that I'm on a fixed income of $83 a month: $15.60 for prison labor and the rest from V.A. disability for war injuries in Vietnam (I served with the 82nd Airborne and the 173rd Airborne in '68 and '69).

What I would like to say is that I like your magazine so much that I have given up Playboy and will subscribe to CIGAR AFICIONADO! That should tell you what I think of your magazine. I love a good cigar. I buy from a local shop in Las Cruces here, and I spend all the money I save on them. I like Macanudos, Partagas #1 and many others, but your articles about Cuban cigars had my mouth watering, and if you guys are sitting around smoking Cohibas, or any Cuban cigars, I sure would appreciate just to sample one. Or if you should have a Davidoff Special R I would be ever so grateful and would be in your debt forever!

As I said, I make $15.60 from prison labor, and I will spend that on a one-year subscription, and I just wonder how many of you cigar lovers would spend a month's salary on a cigar publication. If you're not willing then I say you don't love cigars.

Marvin, I hope Santa is good to me this year. I'm looking forward to my December issue. You can bill me for it. I have my $12.95 eagerly waiting for you.
