1 page on personal stationery featuring Li'l Abner, 11 x 8.25 inches, Boston, April 23, 1958. Written by the most popular American cartoonist of his era to editor Herbert Mayes on the merits and demerits of the Star Spangled Banner, in part: "Asking what's wrong with The Star Spangled Banner or how we can make it better liked is like asking what is wrong with your mother and how we can make her more popular with her family. There is as much wrong and irritating about our national anthem as there is about our mothers, but both, bless 'em, belong to us. We are stuck with them..." Two horizontal folds; near fine condition.
