In full: "Dear Mr. Pruett, I'm sorry to tell you my husband is quite ill and has been in the hospital for some time. You will probably find this enclosure interesting. I am also sending an autographed copy of an end paper of "Raccoons are the Brightest People". Thank you for writing -". Written above a typed letter unsigned by her husband, Sterling North in part: "The Walt Disney film based on my best-seller RASCAL, and the publication of my most recent book THE WOLFLING have brought in so many fan letters that I have found it all but impossible to answer my mail. But the following autobiographical information will probably answer most of your questions".
