Description: 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.

I usually receive my packages as soon as delivered. However, this one had quite a night outside in a snow storm. Thanks to the extra care in packaging and double layer of wrapping cardboard and plastic bag, the book survived in pristine condition.... It sat in a three foot snow drift pounded by snow plows, in minus 25Temps overnight and was discovered this afternoon, the top of the package peeking out of the drift. If not for the attention to packaging and packing materials, this book would have been destroyed. Please let the people who package our treasures know that they make a difference. Whether in person or mail order, you folks rock. Best wishes from the (damned) frozen Adirondacks... - E.E.
