LETTERS OF NOTE: John Steinbeck's Doctor

Another post from Letters of Note, this time concerning the celebrated American author John Steinbeck.
In 1964 Steinbeck's doctor retired, and his replacement asked him to complete a lengthy assessment form detailing his medical history and present condition. Upon reaching the final page, which was blank and reserved for "any other data... of importance", Steinbeck used the space to write his new doctor a letter, setting out what he expected of him.
