TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 page, dated 2 December 1971, to "Dear Chris and Sam" [Sam Moskowitz and his wife, Christine Haycock], signed "Pally & Kelly." On Virginia Beach letterhead of Frank Kelly Freas. Pally recounts the bureaucratic adventures of sending off some posters to Moskowitz and wife as a Christmas greeting. Goes into some detail regarding various categories of mail (third class, fourth class, educational material), mailing tubes, the pros and cons of various nearby post offices, etc. Fascinating for the historian of science fiction as a postal matter. Freas was "the most popular sf artist in the history of the field ..." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 452. Accompanied by a small Christmas card with undated three-page holograph note in Pauline's hand signed "Pally & Kelly." Two faint creases where folded for mailing, fine. (#100284).
