When he was a junior in high school, Conan O’Brien wrote a letter to author E.B. White. O’Brien explained that he had recently received “The letters and essays of E.B. White” as a gift, and had become a fan of White’s.
A few weeks ago, the comedian and host of TBS talk show “Conan” mentioned the letter on his podcast.
O’Brien tweeted a photo of the letter on Thursday. Since the tweet was published, it’s received 24,200 “likes,” and has been retweeted 1,800 times as of Friday morning.
