One Last Thought

From a letter to Hugh Hefner, December 28, 1968
From Montreux. Published in part in Playboy, January 1972.

HAVE you ever noticed how the head and ears of your Bunny resemble a butterfly in shape, with an eyespot on one hindwing?

Happy New Year.

Yours sincerely,


[Selected Letters 1940-1977, 439-440]
