Dear Mrs. Stacy Thank you for writing to me about the help you received from our sales clerk, Mr. Jim Berry. It is gratifying to know that our sales personnel give extraordinary service to our customers. I have shared your kind letter with Mr. Berry and have retained it in his personnel file. Such commendations are always important since a caring attitude is something that all department stores would like to see in their employees. In the case of our store, a substantial reward accompanies such citations. Employees who receive a certain number of them are given a cash bonus as well as mention in the company newspaper and a certificate of merit signed by the company president. As you can imagine, these rewards are highly valued by our employees. Again, thank you for taking the time to write to me about Mr. Johnson. We are Merryweather’s look forward to serving you for many years in the same intelligent manner.
Geoffrey J. Peters.
The Sargasso Sea
Den of sea monsters. Haunt of ghost ships and lost sailors. Home base of Unidentified Flying Objects. These names have all at one time or another been applied to the Sargasso Sea, an area of the Atlantic Ocean extending two thousand square kilometers eastwards from Florida. The two million square kilometer stretch of water is bounded by Bermuda in the north and the West Indies in the South. Although its waters are unusually warm, clear, blue, and salty, the Sargasso Sea gets its notoriety from the great masses of floating seaweed that dot the area and give it its name: sargaco, the Portuguese word for seaweed. Sailors since the time of Christopher Columbus – who was the first European to sail through its waters – have come home with fantastic tales about the mysterious Sargasso Sea. Some claimed that huge monsters inhabited clumps of seaweed in the area, and attacked ships as they sailed by. Others claimed that the seaweed was like a huge marine spider’s web that caught ships and entangled them forever. Many sightings of the ghosts of such vessels were reported through the centuries. In Modern times, because the Sargasso Sea lies in the so-called Bermuda Triangle, the sight of numerous unexplained ship and airplane disappearances, some people claim that it contains a base for UFOs. Marine biologists speculate that the Sargasso seaweed developed from plants torn loose by winds from the shores of the West Indies. The seaweed has no roots; it merely floats on the surface of the water, kept aloft by small, round pockets of air dotting its stems. Reproduction occurs without seeds. Small sections of mature plants, when broken off by waves, merely grow into adult weeds. Thousands of species of fish inhabit the tangled masses.
