Dear Mr. Basil:
Anyone who would pay $5.00 for the first issue of PLAYBOY thinks a good deal of the magazine and deserves to have that issue. I've dug this copy out of our editorial file, especially for you. Consider it a gift. Make your payment by continuing to boost PLAYBOY with your friends and giving lots of PLAYBOY gift subscriptions this Christmas.
