One page, 6.5" x 4.25", [California], November 29, 1990. Reagan sends a birthday quip and his warm regards to Lydia Hupfer McArthur, widow of Peter MacArthur, program director who gave Reagan his first job in broadcasting. In part: "Thank you for your picture, I'm delighted to have it. Now with regard to that 97th birthday? Have you thought about an old Jack Benny custom? I've been using it myself. You no longer have birthdays. You have anniversarys [sic] of your 39th birthday. For you that would be your 58th anniversary... I'm having one of those anniversarys [sic] on Feb. 6..." Two small inkstains affecting two words, otherwise near fine.
