A Valentine from cartoonist Wesley Morse to Ziegfeld Girl Avonne Taylor, 1922-23(?). Notice the pencilled in “Sorry I missed you” and the quickly sketched self-caricature of Morse with a smoke formed question mark hovering over his head. The 80 illustrated letters Morse penned for Taylor are the only surviving document of their long-ago affair.
