Wilmer" in his difficult-to-read handwriting, responding to an inquiry concerning church policy, in part: "...I report that it is out of my power to join the information sought in your letter of the 6th instant.

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
