A Magazine for Letter Writers
LEX explores the world of letters and letter writing in each issue. We've featured Ronald Reagan's official pen pal, an elf who answers children's letters in Minneapolis, a letter written by Helen Keller at the age of 12, cartoons about pen palling from subscribers, quotes from famous letter writers of the past, a timeline of postcard history...you never know what will show up! Plus Lexers share their letter-writing experiences in "Letters to LEX".
No prisoners or singles ads, just good conversation by snail mail.

The peculiar charm of letters perhaps also, their greatest value is brought home to us when they are familiar, unstudied expressions of thought and feeling; when they betray no sense of a larger audience than the friends for whom alone they were written. Edward T. Mason
