Dear Friend & Subscriber,
I owe many of you a big apology.
A short time ago, I wrote a one-page newsletter
that appeared in an envelope icon titled "The Shortest [And
Most Valuable] Newsletter Gary Halbert Has Ever Written!"
Inside that envelope there was a message that said I had a great
website secret which I didn't want to transmit over the Internet.
I said if any of my readers wanted to know this secret, they
had to send me their "snail mail" address... and... I, in return,
would send them "the secret" by snail mail.
Well, it saddens me to say, I am unable to do
just that. You see, so many thousands of readers sent me their
snail mail addresses, I couldn't keep up with the sheer volume.
I was able to mail out a few hundred but, so many readers continued
sending me their snail mail addresses, it's not humanly possible
for me to keep up with this project.
As I've written before, Theresa's #1 priority
has switched from taking care of me and our business to taking
care of her terminally-ill father. Under those trying conditions,
I couldn't possibly ask her to get this mailing out.
I swear to you, I was not trying to "trick"
anyone into sending me their snail mail address. I also swear
to you, if you were one of my readers who sent me their snail
mail address, I am keeping it under lock and key and will never
make it available to anyone.
But don't despair. Just because I can't send you
this secret through snail mail, does NOT mean I am not going
to hold up to my promise and share the secret with you. I am
going to "give it up" but through anothermeans. Because
of everything we're going through, I have no choice but to post
this secret on my website.
Now, by the time you read this e-mail, the secret
may not yet be posted. But, it very soon will be.
And there is something I must tell you in this
e-mail which I should have explained along with the secret.
I should have also told you to use this secret between New Year's
Day and Thanksgiving Day. After Thanksgiving, the U.S. Postal
Service is so clogged with mail, no savvy marketers would dream
of using snail mail during this period of time. But, for the
other 11 months of the year, this secret is enormously
Once again, please accept my profound apologies.
But, right now, trying to keep up with everything without "My
Theresa" by my side... makes me feel like a one-legged
man in an ass-kicking contest.
Gary C. Halbert
This apology will also appear also on my website.
