Belle Starr a Corker
I loved your July 2009 article on outlaw Belle Starr (“Bawdy Belle Starr,” Footnotes in Texas History). She possessed such rugged individualism with a minor in femininity. I had not been reading your publication until this article caught my eye. I am hooked now—interesting and informative writing. Thank you.

Now That’s a Lot of Dough
Your July 2009 issue had a recipe for Knock Your Socks Off Buttermilk Pie that caught my eye. I live in Gunter. We were having a Fourth of July Festival with a baking contest. The Gunter Fire Department then had a fundraising auction including baked goods. I thought my pie wouldn’t bring much. Well, I was wrong. The buttermilk pie won first place and sold to Wayne Hall for $525. I think it set a record price in our pie auction.
Keep up the good work.
