Michael Cooley

I began publishing The Pettit Correspondent in 1988. The experience was extremely rewarding but, three and a half years later, I had to abandon it due to other commitments. A couple of years later I started publishing the less ambitious Pettit Letter but, after only four issues, found that I didn't have time for that either. Below are links to the eleven issues of TPC and the four issues of The Pettit Letter.
