Hanks replied, typing a personal letter to Cholowski.
Then this week, Cholowski received a courier package. Hanks had sent him a 1940 Remington Noiseless typewriter.
“It is in immaculate condition. It is a wonderful typewriter and I am very honored to receive it, ”said Cholowski.
Cholowski said he has used it several times already and will find a place of honor in his home to exhibit it.
“Well, I always thought Mr. Hanks was a standing man. It reaffirmed that he is the genuine person we all love to believe he is, ”he said.
