Dear Sir, I received two autographed letters yesterday, much faster than I expected! I'm a fan of Anne Morrow Lindbergh and I happened to find this item when I was browsing her books... The letters look great and I'm very happy to read her own writing in my hand. Thank you very much for your great business. - Toshihiko Hori
