Notes and Comment

December 1960
New Yorker;12/31/1960, Vol. 36 Issue 46, p17
The article praises Sidney Roby, of Orchard Road, Berlin, Connecticut, for his dedication and support for "The New Yorker," a publication in New York. Sidney Roby has been a subscriber of the periodical for several years and he never failed to visit the office when having a renewal transaction. Accordingly, the management wanted to reward Roby through giving him a celebration on his forthcoming birthday. However, he refused the reward and told the management that it was only a waste of money.
