In full: "Dear Mr. Bohrer: I hope you will forgive my long delay in answering your very kind letter but I have been so occupied with my radio program, Your Neck of the Woods, that I have had to neglect practically everything else. I am very sorry indeed that you have had such a hard time and I hope that things will soon be better for you. It gives me much pleasure to know that you enjoyed Listen For a Lonesome Drum for gathering the material and working on that book was great fun and a fascinating experience for me. I hope your autograph collection prospers and I am only too glad to add my bit to it. Sincerely yours," American author Carl Carmer (1893-1976) was born in Cortland, New York.
