Loyal stockholders,

   I'm taking this opportunity to thank each of you for your continued moral support in the on-going struggle with Namaguchi Industries for control of Preston Paper and Notepads, Inc.  Since May 18 of last year, we have seen profits decline by 38 percent.  Morgan and Morgan, our accountants, tell me that projected profits for this quarter have dropped to $567,000.  We have had to close our pulp mill in Fayette, AR, because of higher labor costs and lowered production. 

   The FTC is investigating Namaguchi for possible stock manipulation, but we cannot depend on a favorable resolution of that matter to solve our overall problem -- a shrinking customer base.  What we need is a new product -- something innovative, something profitable, something to grab the public's imagination.  Since you are all part of the PP&N family, I am asking that you think long and hard on this matter and submit your ideas and suggestions,  regardless of how outlandish they may seem.  We will meet next week, October 19, to see what you have come up with.  Until then, think hard and may the force be with you.

Faithfully yours,

Jacob R. Preston, Sr.
