There is no need to send us letters of complaint about the shortened length of this issue of Preservings. As an experiment, I have decided to publish two issues a year. This issue will focus on how Manitoba Mennonites have interacted with the railway. The following issue, which will explore the theme of Mennonites and the railway in Mexico, Paraguay, and Russia, will be in your mailboxes sometime in April. Two issues a year allows for more flexibility with our content and the possibility of lengthening
the journal. And most importantly, for our Mennonite audience, the cost of Preservings will not increase; readers will actually receive more Mennonite history for their $20 contribution.
