A Letter from San Simeon

Here's an interesting letter written from William Randolph Hearst Jr. to Alex Madonna in Fall of 1965. I love the vintage look and feel of letters written with a typewriter. Grandpa and "Bill," as he referred to himself here, were great friends throughout the years... even if they didn't always agree on matters of business. Their friendship is evident in the photos that were sent along with the letter. Even Grandma Phyllis, who's never been hugely fond of riding horses, was saddled up in a few of these photos - - making them all the more special.
