Inter-Office Memo


* * *

Hello Chairman David,

Received with thanks membership to the Robert Benchley organization. However I note that although [my husband] is a member in good standing my membership states that it is for a Sue Lyon and I am not she. Should I need to present the identification I have been sent would I, Sharon Lyon, be denied entree to Robert Benchley organization events?

Warmest regards, Sharon Lyon
