  • Open Session: One Smart Cow
    ONE SMART COW: While visiting my brother in Cushing, Wisconsin, he took me for a ride around his farm, and we came upon this cow providing shade for her calf. What an intelligent cow.

Birthday Wishes

CAPPER'S has been a part of my life since I was born, and I can recall many changes over the years. I look forward to each and every issue, and although I will miss getting a magazine each month, I’m sure it will be worth the wait.

This is a copy of the letter – in Mr. Capper’s handwriting – that he enclosed in the card he sent when I was a newborn living in Osage City, Kansas, in 1930. The original is in my baby book, and I cherish it. It is almost 79 years old and is in like-new condition.

I wish you all the best with the latest changes to CAPPER'S.

We’re always interested to hear from folks who have a little history of CAPPER'S in their midst, Eva. Thanks for sharing this prized possession with us. – Editors
