A Sample of Maestro Peter Urban's Official Newsletter
to his "Network Loyalists"
Maestro was ALWAYS punctual, and he insisted that his "Network Loyalists" (and
selected friends) receive his personalized newsletter on time.
He would type his letters on an electric word processor. He would add his
photographs and any other special image using his
copy machine. Then Maestro would hire a cab to take him to the print
store to have the four page newsletter collated and "printed",
and make sure that the pages were stapled in the top left corner.
Maestro would return home by cab, and then pay for a round trip cab ride one
more time to pick up the printed newsletters.
Every month (with very, very few exceptions) he would hand address each
envelope, fold his beloved piece of art, and then he would write a private
special piece of correspondence to that individual on a separate piece of paper
that was included with the mailing.
If you have ever sent out a few Christmas (or holiday) cards, you will
appreciate the enormous effort that Maestro preformed
month after month, and year after year, and very often, when he physically did
not feel like doing anything at all.
He did it this way because he believed that his personal contact with his
"Network" was of utmost importance.
Maestro Urban used a preprinted return address label, but he ALWAYS
addressed the envelopes by hand to show that his
envelope (and most importantly, it's content) was "special", and that he wanted
to know that he cared enough to take the time to do this for them.
