Elvis Presley’s Hand For The Government

THE KING OF ROCK & ROLL OFFERING HIS PATRIOTIC SERVICES:

This was a handwritten letter from Elvis Presley to offer his services to the US Government to help in the drug war.

TRANSCRIPTION:

Dear Mr. President:

First, I would like to introduce myself. I am Elvis Presley and admire you and have great respect for your office. I talked to Vice President Agnew in Palm Springs three weeks ago and expressed my concerns for our country. The drug culture, the hippie elements, the SDS, Black Panthers, etc. do not consider me as their enemy or as they call it, the establishment. I call it America and I love it. Sir, I can and will be of any service that I can to help the country out. I have no concerns or motives other than helping the country out. So, I wish not to be given a title or an appointed position. I can and will do more good if I were made a Federal Agent at Large and I will help out by doing it my way through communications with people of all ages. First and foremost, I am an entertainer, but all I need is the Federal credentials. I am on the plane with Senator George Murphy and we have been discussing the problems that our country is faced with.

Sir, I am staying at the Washington Hotel, Room 505-506-507. I have two men who work with me by the name of Jerry Schilling and Sonny West. I am registered under the name of Jon Burrows. I will be here for as long as it takes to get the credentials of a Federal Agent. I have done an in-depth study of drug abuse and Communist brainwashing techniques and I am right in the middle of the whole thing I can and will do the most good.

I am glad to help just so long as it is kept very private. You can have your staff or whomever call me anytime today, tonight or tomorrow. I was nominated this coming year one of America’s Ten Most Outstanding Young Man. That will be in January 18 in my home town of Memphis, Tennessee. I am sending you a short autobiography about myself so you can better understand this approach. I would love to meet you just to say hello if you’re not too busy.

Respectfully,

Elvis Presley

P.S. I believe that you, Sir, were one of the Top Ten Outstanding Men of America Also.

I have a personal gift for you which I would like to present to you and you can accept it or I will keep it for you until you can take it.

Napoleone Bonaparte and his Devotion

If you think that love is grand, well take a look at this masterpiece of a letter by Napoleone Bonaparte. It is a different form of letter writing but somehow weirdly sweet. This is how you revolutionize even in the most subtle way.

A letter of Napoleon Bonaparte to Josephine —

Transcription:

“I love you no longer; on the contrary, I detest you. You are a wretch, very clumsy, very stupid, a Cinderella. You never write to me; you do not love your husband. You know what pleasure your letters give him, and you never write him even six miserable lines! … In truth, my dearest, I am uneasy at having no news from you. Write me four pages filled with those nice, kind things that are such a pleasure to my heart. I hope that ere long I shall seize you in my arms, and cover you with a million burning kisses — burning as though they came from the equator.”

 

There is some kind to magic with words that not all human beings know. This is the epitome of giving someone the slightest to the gravest of all emotions. Letters are personal as it is written by the hands equating to the physical part of someone’s end. The content letter is the cerebral part of the representation of the person through letter. If you think that being sweet cannot be achieved through burst of different emotions, you should see this letter of Napoleon Bonaparte to Josephine.

The personal touch of a handwritten letter still is the best platform to use in writing. Nothing can trump the effort given every time someone writes a letter. This may be the most vintage way of writing but it is the best.

How-To Write

The Writing Guide: INFP Personality

INFPs are idealistic on their imaginations and have been equipped with values and principles that they uphold.  The possibilities for this personality type are endless because they capitalize on their solitude and try to see the potential of the coming days with the touch of their own idealistic ways.

As introverts, they better themselves to get to their ultimate goal. This poses nonjudgmental way of thinking which makes them open-minded at some point.

Writing a letter to an INFP personality is easy because they are great in self-expression. They are compassionate to others even though they enjoy their solitude.

Trait #1: Sensitive

If you write them a letter, they will respond to you with all their sensitivity. They are very sensitive to everyone even if they like to be themselves. They are often called The Healers. If you have any problems of any sort, you can count on INFP to be the one you can vent to. They know what to say to you because of their sensitive nature.

Trait #2: Compassionate

If you have problems, you can count that this INFP recipient will have your back. It is of their nature to be open-minded to whatever topic or scenario people have. This is one good trait that they have. They can put their self to other people’s shoes and would do what they want others to do for them if they ever have any difficulties in life.

Here are quotes from famous INFPs:

 “[People are] quite different. What grips me need hardly touch you at all. … What is innocence in you may be guilt in me. … What has no consequences for you may be the last nail in my coffin.”

-Franz Kafka

“In my imagination, I can come up with anything that I want. I can make things very large and very colorful.”

-George R. R. Martin

“My existence is not without reason! I know that I could be a quite different person! … There is something inside me, but what can it be?”

-Vincent Van Gogh
