224 Dolphin Lane,
I am a great Monkees fan and “Monkees Monthly” is the greatest thing since their TV shows.
One thing though, there’s not many pic’s of them as a group lately, and I’m sure other Monkees fans will agree with me that we’d like to see more of them as a group.
Lots of love to all the Monkees and M.M. readers.
12 Cambridge Road,
Hi! I’m happy now. The concerts were very exciting.
I can’t believe that the Monkees were standing and singing before my very eyes. Sometimes they spoke Japanese very nicely.
Davy lay on his back and blew a kiss to us.
Micky danced vehemently when he sang “I Got-a-Woman”.
Peter spoke Japanese best. His beard becomes him.
Mike sang as usual and stood still.
I sang “Daydream Believer” with Davy. I clapped my hands with Micky.
There arose a storm of cheers for Peter’s banjo and Mike’s guitar.
All of these things enkindle my heart.
I wish I can see my idols again.
I wonder if Peter received my present, “Kou”, in Tokyo. If he has it still, I hope he relishes the scent of Japan.
I’m glad that Peter had a wonderful girl with him. As she looked wise and sunshiny, I think she was suitable for Peter. They were a very lovely couple.
Now, will you ask Davy, Micky, Mike and Mr. “stand-in” that they wish to have photos at industry of NIKON, or not?
May I take the liberty to ask you to do so?
Love and Peace.

Dear Magazine of the Month,
I have just read the Monkee Mail in edition number 22.
When I read the two pieces about Davy and the ignorant reporter, Wow! my feelings. First I read what the reporter had said “When do you think you might break-up and try something like music?” I was furious. Man there was steam coming out of my ears.
I managed to read-on and not panic, then I read that Darling Davy had poured warm water on the reporters fat little head.
What a laugh! But I was still mad. I just had a cartoon picture in my mind. There was Davy all bottled up, pouring water over the horrible little reporter’s head. Well done Davy he got all he deserved.
Love and Peace, especially to Mike, Peter, Micky and Davy.
98 Parthian Road,
I thought I should write and stand beside Alison Fletcher who wrote a letter to you last month, issue No. 22 Nov. 68, about people calling Davy Jones a big head. She says the opposite, and I agree with her because I met Davy when I was in hospital, Great Ormond St. Hospital for Sick Children. He came on June 9th 68 on a Sunday. He was at the hospital roughly 2 hours and he went on to the first wards (Surgical) 6 CD, 4 CD and the ward opposite the ward to myself 2 CD. When he got down from the wards and was ready to go he was told not to sign any more autographs. But he signed one more and was just going to sign another when he had the paper taken off of him. After he had climbed into his car he popped his head out of the window, or rather half of his body, to wave goodbye to us kids, which proved to me that he isn’t a big headed person at all.
Love and Peace, a crazy Davy and Micky Fan and a Monkee Maniac.

P.S. I’ve got roughly eleven autographs, some for the nurses and four on my LPs and one in Fab 208 and I got a sixth one but I gave it to a girl on the ward who couldn’t see him.
