Dear Mr. Scruggs

I attempted to send you a letter c/o Louise Scruggs, Madison, Tennessee which was returned marked "unknown".

It was regarding the following:

I have been a fan of yours since I was a teenager and my uncle taught me to play guitar. I loved the sound of Bluegrass and still do, 40 years later.

I once met you at Williams Grove Park in Pennsylvania and was thrilled that you allowed my friend to take our picture together.

I'm sure you receive letter like this every day from people like myself.

I am trying to find some of your music from an album I had as that excited teenager. It was in the middle to late 1960's and contained songs that you & Lester did concerning songs about Bonnie & Clyde. Songs like "Taking Another Ride with Clyde", and "See Bonnie & Clyde Die" along with the "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", of course.

I recall you and Lester on the jacket, each with a foot propped up on the front of what I think was an old Mormon auto holding old firearms.

Folks that I pick with, some who call themselves "experts", tell me I don't know what I'm talking about, and that this album never existed. I can't prove it as I lost that album years ago.

I get together with other musicians on Monday and Friday nights and would like to revive some of these songs. Can you help me please by sending any words and/or music or a CD copy. I would be more than willing to reimburse any amount to do so.

Thank you for many years of your wonderful performances.
