90th Birthday Gift for Mr. Sheldon
Mrs. Sheldon,

My condolences on the passing of Mr. Sheldon. He was a WONDERFUL writer that re-awakened my love for reading after so many years. The release of one of his book made me happy as a child on Christmas Day.

I would've loved to have met Mr. Sheldon. I'd heard he was an excellent backgammon would've been a honor to have played him in a game!

My wife 'n I watched "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" together to mark our 14th Valentine's Day wedding anniversary yesterday.

I'm curious about something tho...prior to his death, I'd sent an autographed original comic strip panel and its printed Ebony appearance as a 90th birthday present to Mr. Sheldon. The text on the cartoon panel commented that if I could be just 1/10th the cartoonist as Mr. Sheldon was a writer, I'd have an incredibly successful career ahead of me beyond my wildest dreams.

William Morrow forwarded the package after Mr. Sheldon's passing and your step-daughter, Mary, sent me a very warm letter in receipt of the package, but not necessarily of the cartoon itself.

I'm curious to know if the cartoon was received.

Another thing I'm VERY curious about was the comic exchange of "You remind me of a man..." in "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer." Did Mr. Sheldon create that bit or was it something that was typicial said in the late 1940's?

My blessings to you and your family, Mrs. Sheldon.
