and HAND-WRITTEN LETTER
Firstly, I am very sorry about the huge delay in responding to your letter. I had a baby last year and took some time off, hence the vast backlog of mail. However, here is a signed picture for you to auction. You have all my admiration for the great work you are doing.
With love from,
The original recipient's address has been covered in the photos. The photo is in FINE condition but it and the letter have a very slight curve, presumably from it being mailed. This is extremely unnoticeable but should be mentioned.
