“letter from Maggie” (fragmentary script. January 10, 1940.)
Mr. Bill Grady
9877 Carmelita Ave.
Beverly Hills, Calif.
I am sending you a little shillaly so whenever you get out of line Margaret can tap you on the sconce with it. Protestants are the best people.
I have purposely left the price tag on the shillaly so that you will not use it for firewood.
Love and kisses from
Your Uncle Willie
P.S. Your Aunt Maggie from Ireland, who has informed me that more Protestant churches have been burned to the ground, sends her love.
