“MY LACK OF MOVING AROUND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FLYING…”: TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY CHARLES M. SCHULZ ON HIS SNOOPY STATIONERY
SCHULZ, Charles M. Typed letter signed. WITH: Two typed letters and one envelope. Santa Rosa, California, 1973-75. Three typed letters, one signed, each on Schulz’s orange “Snoopy” stationery measuring 6-1/4 by 7 inches, typing on the recto only. With matching original envelope measuring 3-3/4 by 6-1/2 inches.
Typed letter signed by Charles M. Schulz declining an invitation (probably to speak before a class). Together with related typed letters from Schulz, all on his Snoopy stationery.
The letter, on orange stationery with “Charles M. Schulz / Number One Snoopy Place / Santa Rosa, Calif. 95401” at the top and an image of Snoopy in front of his typewriter on top of his doghouse at the bottom, reads: “June 8, 1973. Terry M. Givens, 442 Guilford, Clarmont, California 91711. Dear Terry: Milton is somewhat misinformed. My lack of moving around has nothing to do with flying. Nevertheless, I am in no position, right now, to promise you a visit even though I should like to very much. I simply don’t want to commit myself at this time. I do appreciate the invitation, however, and I am much impressed by what you are doing. Kindest regards, [signed] Charles M. Schulz.” Accompanying this letter are two more to Givens, one dated September 12, 1973 and signed by Schulz’s secretary Evelyn Delgado with Schulz’s name, declining a further offer to speak, and one dated March 27, 1975, telling Givens that “there are no original comic strips available at this time… we should be receiving some from United Feature any day now… we will try to send you one” and signed by Delgado. With original matching envelope with the same image of Snoopy on the front.
Hole punches to first two letters. Fine condition.
