IN MEMORY OF LESTER
Another great master Engrosser has left us. It is with great regret that we report the sad news of the passing of Lester Lincoln Fields. His lovely wife, Ruth, wrote as follows: "I lost my beloved Les on July 28, 1984. He is sorely missed. Also is enclosed a check to cover the extension of subscription to The Penmen's News Letter. L.
