A typed letter from Morrissey to Sounds magazine writer, Dave McCullough. The letter has been signed by Morrissey in black pen and reads: May, presumably Hello Dave, At our recent interview you mentioned that I used the word scullery in a Smiths song, which I naturally denied. It later occurred to me that perhaps you had misheard a vital line in Handsome Devil which states: And when were in your scholarly room Who will swallow whom? I simply wanted this matter cleared up since I have the strongest intention never to be misunderstood. Incidentally, thank you endlessly for your kind words, all perfectly true, even if my name was deprived of an essential S. In poverty, Morrissey THE SMITHS.
