YOUR General Service Headquarters Office wishes to express deep gratitude to those of you who have responded to the letter sent out to the groups by Bill - the semi-annual request for voluntary contributions to The Alcoholic Foundation. We know that there are many more whose contributions are in the mails even now, or will be in the days to come before the end of this year. We are indebted, too, for the many kind things you have had to say in your letters, concerning the services of this office. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding of the need to maintain these vital over-all services. Your response is heartwarming to us, and will enable us to continue to carry the message to "the million who still don't know."
