From the Nov 12, 2008 e-mail from J. Donaldson of Perrysburg, OH:

Dear Jonathan,

Last Spring, I kept hearing noises in my wall. I didn't think much of it. I suspected mice had decided to share my house with me. One evening, I distinctly heard filing or sawing noises and occasional rapping sounds. When I woke up, I discovered that someone - or something quite small had moved in next to my front door. Not only had she (I'm certain that it's a she) moved in, she had created a two story house within my wall. On sunny days, she would hang out her laundry on my front porch (dresses and slips were a dead give -a-way as to her gender). Soon thereafter, I read a child's book by Peter Collington (The Tooth Fairie). I decided to have a look. Her room was full of tiny piano keys, jewelry, clock numbers and dials - all made out of teeth. Sure enough! A tooth fairie had moved into my house. My only complaint is that all of my change seems to disappear as soon as I take it from my pockets! I know what she's doing with it - and so do you! I thought that you might enjoy seeing a picture of what she has done. I look forward to buying and reading your new book. Keep up the good work!

In Peace,
John Donaldson

Post script: Although I have yet to meet the fairie, She is at least agreeable to 4 year old girls. Our neighbor, Gwennie, showed some interest in the fairie door. The fairie sent her a nice note and arranged to have light up - glitter book on fairies sent to her! She is, no doubt, a suburban fairie.

The postperson puts all fairie mail in my box (unless it is a letter no larger then 3/4 of an inch by 1/2 inch). Please note that when mail is fairiescale, the stamp covers the address. Enclosed is a picture of the fairie house last Christmas.

Peace to you and your family.
J. Donaldson
