    Don’t worry about the big cloud. Too many beans with lunch too many days in a row. They’ve nicknamed me “The Hydrogen Bomb.” So cruel.

    Love and gas masks,

    I still can’t get my book published, it has been rejected by all the publishers as “obscene.” I insist it is a story about two catholic buddies roaming the country in search of God, i’ve titled it “On the Road.”
    In the meantime my ex-wife Joan has given birth to a little girl, I cannot be sure if it belongs to me, but I am ready to pack my things and travel the land once again, I hope we can find each other and catch a wild boxcar to the unknown!

    Hope to see you soon,

    I have been laboring for 2 and a half years on a new story, I will include the great Buster Keaton in the production (I can tell he is struggling and we are but contemporaries) this will be my great opus, but possibly my last film. You will play a suicidally despondent ballet dancer opposite to me (a fading comedian), both looking for meaning and hope in life. The film will be called “Limelight.” I cannot think of anyone better for this role. Will you do me the honor of helping me accomplish this project?

    Yours truly,

    Charles Chaplin.

FORCING the SMILES and COMPOSURE and that “all’s well in this household cool”… I’m smoking with worry about it, on the 52nd fag just today; last year there was talk I’d even gone pinko! Me!! I tell you Margaret, uh, June! if they turn tables on us and made the new proud parents of Mather (Beaver) or that Larry Mondello..! If I gotta disciple “Whitey” on living room screens all over America instead a Tony Dow, I swear, Marj..(deep inhale, drinks drink later banned on TV), I tell ya…I’ll move to Miami if I have to, I’ll bring back Amos n Andy radio, I’ll give away my 1948-Tele-Tone-TV149, bigger than my bathroom that 4 ton wonder! Might gotta break down the front door just to get it out…! I tell you I’d go straight to my, uh, (keep this on the hushed) new bomb shelter for JUST ME (and u) if.., or, well, then again, if they double the $, new contract like Jackie Gleason got, I might throw a bowling bowl at it, I mean, send the “Beav” and his teen R&B crowd to bed early on occasion.

    In 60 years, the year in which I am writing this postcard will be the subject for a contest to win tickets in Miami to see an awesome band. The relevance of the year featured in the contest is of course in reference to an album whose title will also share this year. Just you trust me.

    Love ya a lil bit.
    Your crazy uncle Raul.
