Typed Letter Signed about the National Anthem

1958.

1 page on personal stationery, 10.25 x 7.25 inches, no place, April 14, 1958. Signed "Ethel" to "Good Housekeeping" editor Herbert Mayes on the subject of the national anthem, in part: "...maybe I'm just an old sentimentalist or maybe I'm too set in my ways, but to me there is something almost sacrilegious about the thought of supplanting an established national anthem with one more or less fashioned to satisfy new artistic or political criticisms...I do think there should be one official version of the anthem rather than the present two hundred and seventy-one..." Natural folds plus a faint crease in the upper left corner; very good(+) condition.
