Letters from students in the 1960’s about the flat earth
Here are a group of letters to Samuel Shenton, the president of The Flat Earth Society at the time asking about the flat earth. Take note of the first one. Can you answer these questions? They are legitimate questions people might ask when they are confronted about the flat earth. Unfortunately, I don’t have the letter (if any) that Mr Shenton wrote back.
You might want to write down the questions in the first letter and look up the answers or you might already know them. Then, you’ll be prepared to discuss the flat earth with others.
I have other old letters to The Flat Earth Society that I might post from time-to-time.
