27.11.23 Dare Ms. Heide Monster, ..just now discovered your proposal (suggestion) of April 17 concerning lobbying the U.S.P.S.for a special discounted mail art rate. As much as I wish your idea had a possible future... I'm afraid & suspect that it would not be likely  (given my own personal experience [over the years]) of returned mailings marked "Undeliverable " & at the P.O. window refusals accepting my prospective envelopes, etc. Not to mention that there are many mail artists out there that push the boundaries far more than I. But yes, you have a noble idea. SinCelery, Richard Canard

Great idea.  I’m sure they will be most receptive to that idea

We need to lobby the USPS for a special discounted mail art rate.
