What a pleasure to read the enclosed article in the Sunday issue of the Burlington Times News. Eddie Smith and I enjoyed meeting Charles Ballard when we visited your shop a couple of months ago. Obviously, he is a terribly skilled marksman, using a most precise rifle built by you, my friend. Congratulations. I am taking the liberty of sharing this article with a few hunting friends. Eddie and I really enjoy the rifles you built for us. Very best!” –Nat Harris
