Although Karl King usually typed his correspondence, this letter to his good friend Henry Killinger was hand written because Karl's arm was in a sling following a musical accident at a rehearsal.  Karl would always indicate or give  the accents to his bass drummer and cymbal player.  One day this procedure, accompanied by a foot stomp, resulted in his falling off the podium and breaking his wrist.  He went to the hospital and returned to the rehearsal with his arm in a sling.  He jokingly admonished his cymbal player for missing the beat and causing the accident.

The letter above and the following letters accompanied payments on the $1000 loan from Henry Killinger which allowed Karl King to start his publishing company.
