With kind permission of RIck Crandall:

Letters from Larry Nelson 1976 – 1980 to Joe Torzewski, Apple I Owners Club
“… purchased my Apple I in June, 1977…. Am enclosing a listing of a Tic-tac-toe game that I developed to run in the Apple I.”

“… working on BASIC. I’ve cracked a lot of the code and am working on cleaning out a lot of the trash. It looks like they threw this thing together to get a computer out the market fast. Probably used bits and pieces from other listings, since there are several places with bad listings.”
April 8, 1981 – “… the NEW BASIC is almost ready! I’ve re-written the whole thing …”
