Praise From Texas

February 15, 2013
  Sometimes I get really creative mail here at the True West World Headquarters.

Here's part of the letter inside:

"In 1957 my mother sent me to Sanderson, Texas for the summer. There was absolutely nothing to do. The theatre opened at two and that was my home. So before the theatre I'd hang at the local drug store and it was there I discovered True West! It was printed on newsprint and headquartered out of Austin! You sir, have maintained the quality of TW with your marvelous illustrations and fantastic stories. May the good lord continue to give you a full imagination and take care of your hands!"
—Your amigo in Texas, Rudolph Gonzalez, San Antonio, Texas
