Dear Kenneth:
    We are only too glad to comply with the request of your recent letter, and appreciate your thinking of us.
    We didn't quite realize we were throwing so much trade toward the medical profession, but we do know that we try to make people happy with our comedies.
    Yours for faster and funnier comedies we remain,
                Yours Sincerely,
Stan Laurel Signature                     +

Dear Miss [Marion W.] Neal-
    Please pardon delay in my reply to yours of Oct. 9th. But have been awfully busy making the foreign versions of our first full length picture. The title has been changed from "The Rap" to "THEIR FIRST MISTAKE." Hope you will like it when you see it. We are making it in five languages - English - Spanish - French - German & Italian & are speaking them all.
                Sincerely,
Stan Laurel Signature
