Letters of Note has unearthed a genuine MAD Magazine rejection letter dating back to Al Feldstein‘s reign as MAD’s top editor. Apparently, this is what every unsuccessful MAD submitter received when Feldstein was in charge. It’s witty, gracious without being wimpy, and advises the reject to adopt a “What-Me worry?” attitude.

As ever, lots more excellent correspondences at Letters of Note.
