LETTERS OF NOTE: Spike and Monty

Another witty little something from Letters of Note, in the absence of a new review (apologies).
This time we turn our attention to Spike Milligan and Monty: His Part in My Victory, the third of his five volumes of war autobiography originally published in 1976. In February the following year, Milligan received a letter from a disappointed fan, complaining about (amongst other things) the large amount of one-liners and lack of mention for how Milligan met his Goon Show counterparts, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe. The following is Spike's typically hilarious and provocative reply.

For all Goon Show fans, head to http://www.thegoonshow.net/, where you can download a new show every month as well as browse through episode transcripts, rare drawings of the characters and much, much more.
