Publication details: 
16 March 1978; on Daily Express letterhead.
SKU: 4254

Probably the most famous of the Fleet Street cartoonists (1916-95). One page, quarto. Folded twice. Good, but lightly creased. He thanks him for the 'very nice letter and compliments', but feels he 'must administer a small but friendly reprimand. The Jean Rook [a noted Daily Express columnist] originals you refer to were ones concerning her article of the day and were a personal presentation.' Discusses charity commitments, before remarking 'It may surprise you that I spend more time in the studio working for charities than I do earning my living! I repeat I don't wish to appear unkind, but I did find that Jean Rook reference a little galling.' He has however had 'a special reproduction [...] made for you which I hope may halp your landlord's worthy cause.' Signed 'C R Giles'. In frayed, dogeared envelope addressed in autograph to Goodyer, and with calculations on back.
