Louis Armstrong signing off in style. A thread...
Swiss Krissly Yours,

(From a letter dated Nov 1940. ‘Swiss Kriss’ was his favourite laxative; ‘Satchmo’ was his nickname - short for ‘Satchel mouth’.)
Am Musically Yours,
Louis Armstrong

(From a letter dated 1941.)
Yours Soul Foodly,
Ol' Satchmo

(From an undated letter, circa 1941.)
Am Pluto Waterly Yours,
Louis Armstrong

(From a letter dated May 7th 1944. ‘Pluto Water’ was another laxative Louis used; he was a connoisseur.)
Am Ricely & Chickenly Yours,

(From a letter dated Sept 17th 1949.)
I am Trumpetly Yours,
Louis Armstrong

(From a letter dated Nov 1949. Genuinely not sure if he's referring to the instrument or the beans.)
Am Ulceratedly Yours,
Louis Armstrong

(From a letter dated June 14th 1950. Satchmo thought he had stomach ulcers; turns out, as you can see in this clipping, it was all the beans.)
Am Red beans and Ricely Yours,
Louis Armstrong

(From a letter dated Feb 9th 1952.)
There are more. He was the King of Valediction.
