DescriptionA Handwritten Missive, 1974. Penned by Wayne in black ballpoint ink on the verso of an unrelated letter sent to him; Wayne's response to allegations by Senator Lowell P. Weicker that he received tax breaks because of his friendship with Nixon; reading in part "Dear Wicker / For your information / I have never ask(ed) for nor / received IRS favors nor / have I needed them. / What I need / is protection from cheap / politicians like / you... / J. Wayne," with many cross-outs, edits, and doodles evident; included is a newspaper clipping sent to Wayne where this letter was quoted so he evidently mailed it and it got press.
