Robert Taylor (letterhead)
December 28 
Dear Colonel Parker—-
The answer to your letter of December 16th is—-“Yer damned right the sausage arrived and it’s good–mighty good!—-and if anybody tells you it ain’t you should slug ’em!”
Seriously, Colonel, thanx for your kind thoughtfulness—and I’m saving the name and address of the outfit who makes this stuff so’s I can order more.
Your special Xmas card also arrived and thanks again. We Taylors had a fine time on Xmas Eve and our young “Monster,” aged 3 1/2, is really starting to get into the spirit of things.
My best to you and Elvis–hope you had a fine Xmas too—and that 1959 will be a great year for all of you.
