M. David Samples to Mrs. Inglis Fletcher, 10
Following the Bath 250th anniversary events, participants made closer connections, as shown in this more personal thank you
letter from Queen Anne’s Bell
director M. David Samples to novelist Inglis Fletcher.
Chapel Hill, N.C.
October 10, 1955
My dear Mrs Fletcher:
I sent a hasty form letter after the Bath Pageant thanking you and others for their contribution to QUEEN ANNE'S BELL but
wanted to send a special note of gratitude for the pleasure of spending those few hectic hours with you. It was such fun despite
all the last minute mess of things. You were a positive darling to put up with it all, a real trooper.
Tried in three places to get one of your earlier books but am told they are all out of print. I'd love having on [sic] if
you can advise where to look. I want to send it to you for special engraving so I might place it next to my engraved Edna
Milley as the center of my prized books.
Don't forget when you get here to let me know. Until then all good wishes to you.
[Signature] David Samples
