Mr. Philip Graham Washington Post, D.C.

Dear Phil:

Why don't you retire this frustrated old fuddy duddy and hire a music reviewer who knows what he's talking about? At least you should send somebody with him to a piano recital who knows the score.

This review is a disgraceful piece of poppycock. You should be ashamed for having printed it. You're not of course because the publicity sheets are never wrong.

Sincerely. H.S.T.
