Big week! 😬 On Thursday, these brand new, themed collections of letters are published. I love them; hopefully you will too. Letters about sex, fathers, dogs, grief, New York, and space. They fit in big pockets and make excellent gifts. Available in all the usual places.
Very proud of these books. I'll be showing you letters from all the titles in the coming days and weeks, on here and on Instagram (instagram.com/lettersofnote) and in the newsletter (news.lettersofnote.com) and anywhere else that springs to mind.
And there are audiobooks featuring all manner of talented people. We managed it, despite all of this [waves hands around]. I recorded my parts in a cupboard under my staircase. I'll let you know when they're available. x
Saigon fell on this day in 1975, signalling the end of the Vietnam War. US forces were airlifting thousands to safety when the crew of USS Midway spotted this small plane approaching the carrier.
It was being flown by South Vietnamese Air Force Major Buang-Ly, who had just fled Saigon with his wife and 5 kids, also aboard. With fuel running low, circling the carrier, he tried dropping notes from the plane. Before long, this one hit the deck, tied to a pistol.
His desperate message, scribbled on a map, read:
"Can you move the Helicopter to the other side, I can land on your runway, I can fly 1 hour more, we have enough time to mouve. Please rescue me.
This politely devastating letter from Michael Wolff's lawyers to Donald Trump's lawyers really did hit the spot. Thanks to the many people who threw it my way. Let's take a look at some other Legal Letters of Note *gestures towards thread*
