Marilyn and Pat, last name unknown, were children in Cornell's Utopia Parkway, Flushing NY neighborhood. Written on an index card, the letter addresses Cornell as "dear Werewolf" and thanks him for a present and for not telling anyone about the children's clubhouse. On the back they have written a werewolf's howl: Aoooooooooo.
