To The Editor:

I am writing to you for a class project for a book we are reading called “The Watsons Go to Birmingham.” My classmates and I are writing to newspapers across the country to learn more about them. I have chosen Vermont because a couple of my uncles just recently went to Burlington, VT, for a hockey tournament. I would like to go to Vermont to see what it’s like there.

I am also writing to ask your readers to please write back to me and tell me why they like Vermont, interesting facts about the state and what visitors can do there. They may write to my school’s address at Queen of Peace Catholic School, 4508 Vistula Road, Mishawaka, IN 46544. If you could also include a copy of the newspaper where they saw my letter, I’d greatly appreciate it. If you have any questions, please contact my teacher’s email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or you may contact her by phone at 574-255-0392, ext. 123.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Jake Murphy
