California University of Pennsylvania is forwarding the letter to Muhammad Siddeeq at his Indianapolis home after his friends and family members heard news reports about the letter sent to a student with his former name.

The letter addressed to Clark Moore and postmarked February 1958 arrived at the campus mail room last week. The note ends: "I still miss you as much as ever and love you a thousand times more. Please write me real soon. Vonnie."

Siddeeq tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review he has mixed emotions about it.

It turns out he and Vonnie are divorced. She declined to speak to the newspaper.

Still, 74-year-old Siddeeq says tells the Washington Observer-Reporter the letter is "a testament of the sincerity, interest and innocence of that time."
