To: Prescott Chamber of Commerce -
I took a trip out to Arizona this past February. I like to travel as much as possible. I have so many frequent flier miles
that they call me World Travelling Steve Wilson whenever I go to the airport! I went out to Arizona because my special
friend, Mike (and his wife Susie) from Phoenix, AZ wanted to show me the sites. We saw the evil house (that is no longer
evil!) the giant baby billboard and even a giant seagull in the desert. Let me tell you, it was a lot warmer than where I
live. I'm from Selden, NY (off Middle Country Road, right next to the Taco Bell).
While I was there Mike informed me that the name of your city is pronounced "Prescut" not "Press Scott". Was that to
distinguish yourselves from the nine other Prescotts in the country or is it a special regional dialect? I was hoping to
return to Arizona at some point in the future and visit your fair city. From the brochures I saw it looks great. But I
want to be careful in case it's a different pronunciation of english words in Prescott. I can't tell you the problems I had
the last time I went to the deep south to buy a set of paints. I came home with twelve sets of dress slacks!
Do you have a Prescott to NY dialect translation available for sale? I think this would be helpful for planning my
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
