A Response to Hugh Magbie's Letter to St. John

Dear Source,
Mr. Magbie, thank you so much for that educated and thoughtful piece that you have written on the feelings and desperation of the people of the Virgin Islands. I couldn't have said it better myself. You hit the nail right on the head. Again, I say thank you. Maybe now settlers who want to purchase land from locals or think that they can come in the Virgin Islands settle down and ignore the people of the islands, maybe now after reading your letter they will understand now that the locals here just want the islands to remain serene, uncongested, and remain Caribbean Islands with the legacy of landowners intact.
