Mr. Joe Cowles

Dear Joe: In reply to your letter of the 13th. I must say I'm not sure my advice about cartooning would be very helpful, as I am pretty ignorant on the subject, myself. The Donald Duck comic book work is about the only experience I've had in the business, and I just feel my way along on that.
    However, if you'd like to look at my work methods and see how I develop my ideas into plots and plots into drawings, you're welcome to pop in any day, afternoon or evenings. The wife and I always go shopping in the mornings.
    Our home address is 1421 Poppy Drive, Hemet. Poppy Dr. is a new residence street off South Girard Ave. just east of Hemet. Girard is the street that runs from Highway 74 to the Ramona Bowl. Telephone number is OLive 8-3712.
    It would be a pleasure for me to meet a reader who digs comic books. Up here in the bible belt people only read the good book and the Walnut Growers' Nutshell News.

Sincerely yours

Carl Barks
