Description: 1 page on "International News Service" letterhead, 11 x 8.5 inches, Beverly Hills, California, April 14, 1958. Written by the influential Hollywood gossip columnist, responding passionately to Mayes's query regarding replacing the national anthem, in part: "...There have been many complaints that our national anthem is difficult to sing and is only for people with fine singing voices. Yes, it is difficult but it really doesn't matter if the anthem isn't sung well, just so we know it, and even if the lyrics are only spoken, let's hear them. Writers such as Francis Scott Key are not born every day...This great song has strength and power and has been the theme of hundreds of thousands of men and women who have died on the fields of battle..." One handwritten correction; horizontal folds; small creases at the corners. Very good(-) condition.

Thank you for your kind response. As it turns out, I was able to visit the Argosy on Tuesday. In fact, I arrived shortly after opening and stayed most of the morning, making a number of purchases. I notice that you wrote to me a 10:34 AM, meaning that I was in the store when you sent me an email. One of life's many coincidences... Again, many thanks for your courteous response. Best regards, until my next visit! - Phillip R.
