Hi! I thought I'd start off by passing some addresses to you:

	Tom Dunn
	The Universal Coterie of Pipe Smokers
	20-37 120th St.
	College Point, NY 11356

Tom puts out a witty and informative newsletter called "The Pipe
Smoker's Ephemeris" on an irregular basis, and in general acts as a
focal point for pipe smokers, Sherlockians, hobbits, and others of
similar persuasion. The newsletter is free (he sent it to me for
years, no questions asked!), but a donation would be nice. TPSE/TUCOPS
is the largest and most worthwhile group of pipe aficionados I know.

	International Association of Pipe Smokers' Clubs
	17 Midline Road
	Ballston Lake, NY 12019

Honestly, I don't know how active the IAPSC is; I tried to contact
the local chapter for Philadelphia while I lived there, and never got
an answer. You may have better luck, though; it's worth a stamp.

	Pipe Collectors International, Inc.
	6172 Airways Blvd.
	Box 22085
	Chattanooga, TN 37422

I have just learned of this group, and wrote to them last week; I'll
let you know the results. Also look for a mini-review of one of the
popular tobacco blends, as soon as I decide on one (probably by
stochastic processes, aka random guess :-9

Smoke in peace,

~\U Steve.

Steve, please edit this and send it across the mailing list.  Thanks!

Hi there, everybody.  I just got my first pipe (an English "rum
cake"), and so far the only tobacco I've smoked has been "Mystique",
which I believe is the tobacconist's own blend.  Could anyone post or
e-mail to me the names of several mild, sweet tobaccos that would be
available in a pipe shop?  I'm still new at this and don't know where
to start.  Thanks.

Andy

[Personally, I like non-aromatic tobaccos the best, but I might
mention a couple of suggestions. When I started smoking, I used
Amphora Mild Aromatic, a cavendish mixture. It _is_ mild, as long as
you smoke slowly, but most tobaccos don't stay mild if you're puffing
furiously!  You might also check out Captain Black or Borkum Riff,
which are both strongly aromatic. Someone mentioned Cherry Cavendish
(not sure if this is the brand name!) a while back, too.

By the way, congratulations on your new pipe! Hope you both become
good friends. -S.]

[editor at work]

Changing the subject to what is really important for mankind, pipes of
course: I saw today a tinbox of tobacco by MacBaren which I didn't buy, but
will soon. It's called just Latakia. I've tried MacBaren before and it is
quite strong. It's a Dannish company. Anyway, I will try it and pass my
impressions to the group.

Have a good smoke.

Elias Mazur.

[Looking forward to it. -S.]
