From the May 1957 magazine.

Jig-saw Puzzle

HAVING BEEN A CONSTANT READER of our magazine, The Grapevine, since first coming to AA and a subscriber for over six years, I have received a lot of help from my many new-found friends scattered over the world today. Through their Twelfth Step work of sharing their experience, strength and hope with me and others by their contributions, this wonderful magazine is made possible.

I have borrowed, stolen, annexed so many ideas that have helped me over rough spots and given me the tools to try and help others, that I thought perhaps it was time I tried to pay back into the account I have been drawing from these many happy twenty-four hours.
