He takes the Parker 75 from his pocket, and once again he is reminded of you-of your thoughtful ness, of your clearly evident admiration for him, and of your good taste, most of all. For with the Parker 75 you succeeded in giving him a gift that is personal, memorable, and fully in accord with his own standards of judgment.
