DEAR DIXIE OUTFITTERS,

I HAVE PURCHASED A LOT OF OUR PRODUCTS OVER THE YEARS AND I AM OVERJOYED AT THE CLOTHING I HAVE RECEIVED. I HAVE ONE SHIRT FOR OVER THREE YEARS AND IT IS STILL IN GOOD CONDITION. I HAVE ALSO LEARNED A VERY IMPORTANT THING AND THAT IS TO ALWAYS PRESERVE OUR SOUTHERN HERITAGE. BEFORE I READ THAT MISSION STATEMENT IN THE FRONT OF YOUR MAGAZINE I HAD NO IDEA THAT LINCOLN HAD RAISED THE TAXES LIKE THAT AND HE WAS THE ONE THAT STARTED THE CIVIL WAR.

I KNOW NOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO PRESERVE OUR HERITAGE. I AM GLAD THAT I HAVE LEARNED THIS FROM YOU AND I AM SENDING YOU THIS LETTER TO THANK YOU FOR THE FINE CLOTHING AND ABUNDANT KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING I HAVE RECEIVED. YOU HAVE CHANGED MY OUTLOOK ON THE CIVIL WAR AND WHAT THE WAR WAS ALL ABOUT. I KNOW NOW WHY ALL OF OUR BRAVE SOUTHERN BROTHERS LOST THEIR LIFE FOR AND THAT REASON WAS FOR THEIR INDEPENDENCE AND THE RIGHT TO BE REPRESENDED FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVED IN AND NOT JUST TAXED WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. SO I AM THANKING YOU AGAIN FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME AND MANY OTHERS JUST LIKE ME.

SINCERELY,
ANDREW LEWIS
