ISP - Inscribed Signed Photograph: 8"x10" black/white glossy closeup head shot. On the lower white mount, Archbishop Sheen has penned: To My Esteemed Brother in Christ, Bishop Earl G. Hunt, Jr., With The Cordial Gratitude of Fulton J. Sheen.
NOTA BENE: Autograph photo accompanied by 1967 Typewritten Letter Signed obviously dictated by Archbishop Sheen but signed in his absence by a secretary. Reads: I have received your gracious wire asking me to participate in the 1968 Spring sessions at High Point, North Carolina. I am deeply honored by this invitation, which betokens Christian unity, and would very much like to accept. I am obliged to leave now for Rome to attend the Synod, and I therefore cannot make any immediate preparations. However, I will consider the invitation a little later, and if at all possible, I will accept.
