STANLEY BAXTER....A MASTER OF HIS CRAFT

This post from Joe about the great Stanley Baxter who celebrates his 89th birthday later this month......

Dear Mr Baxter,

May I first say that I hope you have a wonderful birthday on May 24th.

I have found you to be a great inspiration over the years, as I'm sure you've been to many others but never as good as yourself the great Master.

So once again have a joyful birthday.

Yours sincerely

Joe Longthorne & Jamie Moran.
