“On Friday October 5 1973 I am going to break your spaghetti eating record as reported in the Guiness Book of World Records. It would be a great pleasure to have you present to defend your title when I sit down to eat at 10:30 am on that date at the Old Fashioned Spaghetti Village. The resturant is located at 652 North La Peer in West Hollywood, CA. I look forward to seeing you then and there sincerely.
