DISNEY, WALTER ELIAS.
Typed Letter Signed ("Walt Disney"), 1 p, 4to, Burbank, CA, December 19, 1940, on pictorial "Walt Disney's Fantasia" letterhead, three holes punched at right and at left margin, light toning, otherwise fine.
Disney writes a letter of recommendation for a former staff writer: "Mr. John Sutherland, who was with our organization in the capacity of a Story and Gag Man, as well as a Writer for the past three years, is a swell guy, ambitious, and very deserving of much success. He left our studio of his own accord so that he might be free to devote his time to writing. We regretted his leaving exceedingly, and he took with him the best wishes of all those who knew him and worked with him."
