My Dad bought me a copy of MM for the Apple ][e when I was in the 5th grade.  After getting stuck, I sent a photo-copied, hand written letter to every person who's name I could find on the box.  I remember it was about 3 pages of questions.  A few weeks later I got back an order form for the hint book.  

Ron - You don't happen to remember my letter, do ya?  LOL
