The Planet is the Quickest and Best

March 11, 1905


A satisfied customer praises John Mitchell, Jr., for running one of the “leading papers,” citing The Planet’s quick work and fine office.


Mr. Editor: I wish to compliment you and your employees on fast work. I sent a manuscript to your office at 12:15 P. M., and I received the work in good shape at 5 P. M. same day. Much, yes, much to my surprise. I want to say through this writing that it has been my good fortune to visit the press rooms of the leading papers managed by our race, and allow me to be frank with you, I think your new press is the finest I ever saw. Please accept my best wishes for success.
