    Excerpt:

    "He may be famed for his wonderful lyricism but the writing talents of Morrissey had been in his blood for years before ever entering the public consciousness as the lead singer of The Smiths. The singer was a prolific letter writer and extended his thoughts via pen and paper to anyone who would listen.

    We thought we’d take a look back at the young Stephen Morrissey and his review of the Sex Pistols in 1976 as they performed at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester – as part of that tour."

    Yes, NME - June 18, 1976.
    He used the term 'I pen this epistle' in an earlier letter regarding the NY Dolls also (Sounds, December 27, 1975).
