In full: "I am now home in Fort Myers, Florida, for a little rest and relaxation after completing Part One of my golf show program for Wilson's. This gives me the opportunity to thank you for your letter of June 3, 1987. I will begin Part Two of my program in a few days. I have had a wonderful and successful tour and look forward to the second half. Enclosed is an autographed photo for your vast collection. 10,000 photographs - and 400 golf photos ... that is something! I hope you are feeling better and that you will be continuing with your hobby for many, many years. Again, many thanks for your letter, and my very best wishes to you and Betty always. God bless you both." Photograph not included.
