Ridgeville Corners, Ohio
Post Office Box 73
Several weeks ago I purchased from Johnson Smith & Company of Detroit, a Ouija Board which was manufactured by you.
We are amazed , fascinated, and intrigued. Each time we use it our wonder increases.
My reason for writing this letter is twofold. First I would like to know if you can give me any sources or information about the origin of the Ouija Board and related information about it. Secondly; Do you manufacture or can you tell me where to buy one of these outfits (I don't know their name) which is three cornered; has a small caster on each of the two corners, and a pencil on the other corner and which will write messages on a sheet of paper?
I thank you very much for any help you may be able to give me. I am enclosing a stamped, self addressed envelope for your anxiously awaited reply.
