Someone has advised me, privately, that many fine, upstanding,
paid members of SCA, Incorporated, do not receive Acorn.  These
Associate Members contribute even more to the Corporation than
do Sustaining Members, because none of their dues goes towards
magazines and newsletters.

I now advise that their Majesties' flappers only permit TRM to
read letters that contain the phrase, "I give my word that I hold
a current paid membership in The Society for Creative Anachronism,
Inc."  This should suffice for proof in an honor-bound Society.
