To respond to a personal Ad you need to have 2 stamped envelopes. The first step is to write a letter in response to the ad and include some of your contact information in the letter. Put that letter in one of the stamped envelopes and write the 7 letter/digit code found with the ad on the bottom left hand corner of the envelope. Next, enclose a $6 check or money order made out to Want Ad Digest in the 2nd envelope along with the letter to the respondant. Mail that to us at Want Ad Digest, Attn: Personals, 870 Hoosick Rd, Troy, NY 12180. When we receive your letter we will send your sealed envelope to the recepient indicated.
