Typed letter signed "Bill McGowan," one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, December 28, 1950. Letter to John Drohan, a reporter and baseball writer for the Boston Traveler, in part: "I want to thank you dear for the very wonderful write-up you gave the famous McGowan School for Blind Men. Certainly appreciate it, John and I know it's going to do me a lot of good. I wish a couple of those other guys up in Boston who have been on my neck for 26 years would open up a little bit and give me a little publicity. I can use it right now. I enroll about four students everyday and then two days later two of them cancel because they are called into the service or something, or they haven't got the money. However, at the present moment, I have 125 enrolled and have 600 letters in the mail and should hit that 200 mark by Feb. 20th, when our second class starts." In fine condition, with intersecting folds. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
