After Bob Hope the letter remained largely unchanged.
The next recipient was Burke's Backyard, a TV show. They replied (in an envelope addressed to both me and Richard):
Thank you for your delightful letter, it cheered up the research department no end and gave us a good excuse to drop the cutting edge of research and spend 10 minutes perusing our library.
We hace photocopied some literature for you and the 3 Whys!! (The boys)
It actually is not such a fountain of information. Folklore was designed to be more obscure than anything else!
Perhaps a note to one of the Lily Societies on the back of the fact sheet may be able to help you.
Just to prove to the 3 Why's that parents can cough up with some goodies, enclosed are some Burke's Backyard stickers.
Thanks for the letter and thanks for watching the show.
Lindy Butler - Researcher.
