Dear Mr. Mayette:
Last evening the Members of Congress who play paddleball to keep themselves in good physical condition had their annual dinner.
As usual, our colleague, John Fogarty, provided us with some wonderful lobsters. He was modest about his contribution, which was the main item of the meal, but was very ardent in praise of Mr. Mayette, who he said was one of his constituents who furnished us this lobster.
Personally, I wish I could shake your hand and thank you for your generosity in sending these lobsters. We enjoyed them tremendously and every one of us had all we could handle.
This is quite a treat to those of us who live on the Western Coast because we do not have real lobsters in that part of the world.
As well as having wonderful sea food, you have a very fine Congressman. He is not only intelligent and hard working but also thoroughly respected by his colleagues in the House of Representatives, regardless of their party.
With my kind personal regards to you, I remain
Sincerely yours,
Leroy Johnson
