Dear Ed

Fred sent the enclosed clipping to me and asked me to send it to you - he supposed you had seen it, but if not he did not want you to miss it. 

Pardon me in calling you by your little boy name. Of course, you and Hugh will always be boys to me, whatever you are to the rest of the world.

Very truly

Mary S. Clark

P.S. Frwd using my brother Fred ???

Dear Mrs. Clark:

I wish to thank you and through you, Fred, for the very interesting clipping enclosed in your letter of April 22. It was quite the most interesting Tarzan article I have ever seen, and although I subscribe for the services of a clipping bureau I am sure that I should never have seen this article had it not been for Fred's thoughtfulness; in fact, many of my best newspaper clippings come from my friends rather than from the clipping bureau.

It makes me smile a little to think that you could ever consider calling me anything but Ed, as I should certainly be hurt if so old a friend were to treat me so formally. It may shock you to know that I always think of you as Molly Clark, though the habit of childhood prompts me to address you otherwise.

When you write Fred please give him our love. We often speak of him and should be interested in hearing from him or of him.

With kindest regards, I am

Very sincerely yours,

Dear Mr. Burroughs:

It has been a long time since I last wrote to you and many changes have happened to me since then. I have graduated High School, there has been a death in our family and also a marriage and it has been only recently that I started my correspondence with my friends again.
My reading material has gone down and I am anxious to know about your next story. 

I read an interesting article in this month's American Magazine about Zane Grey. I would advise you to read it if you have not already done so.

With faith and regards to you and to friend Hulbert, I remain,

Your faithful reader
John D'Agosino

Dear John:

I was glad to have youir letter of July 19th, but very sorry to learn that there has been a death in your family.

I should be interested in reading the article about Mr. Zane Grey in teh American Magazine. I have never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Grey, and I understand he is a very interesting man and he certainly writes bully stories.

With kindest regards, I am

Very sincerely yours,

Mr. Edgar Rice Burroughs

My dear Mr. Burroughs:

Doug Rothacker has given me your letter of January thirty-first to him. May I say that I am looking forward with eagerness to being able to meet the creator of one of the most delightful moments of my younger days.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Clarence Mulford, whose Bar-Twenty Stories were also one of those that made my youth more liveable. I was privileged to receive several of his leather bound copies autographed. I hope that I will have the good fortune to secure several of our volumes similarly autographed, and rest assured I will treasure them most highly.

Kindest regards, and looking forward to our meeting, I am,

Yours sincerely,

Los Angeles, California,

My dear Mr. Vallee:

Many thanks for your letter of February 12.

We certainly should get together, and we must see what we can do about it in the near future. Doug gave me your telephone number, but I have mislaid it. If I may have it again, I will give you a ring in the near future. Mine is CRestview 19145.

If you will let me know which of my books  you would like to have autographed, I should be very glad to send you copies, though they won't be leather-bound. I have never felt that they were important enough for that.

With best wishes, I am

Very sincerely yours,
