No. 1430: Telecrostic

A telegram, please, from a well-known person (alive or dead) to a contemporary, together with the reply, the initial letters of the words in each telegram to spell out the name of the addressee, which can be either the full name (shades of Wilde!) or a generally used shorter form (Bernard Shaw, say).
