Richard P. Feynman to Sandra Chester, date unknown


Dear Sandra,

I was delighted too when I heard about the Nobel Prize, thinking as you did that my bongo playing was at last recognized. Imagine my chagrin when I realized that there had been some mistake—they cited some marks I made on paper some 15 years ago—and not one word about percussion technique.

I know you share in my disappointment.

Thank you,
Richard P. Feynman
