Original Beetle Dooley... er, Bailey

According to ebay, this Beetle Bailey strip by Mort Walker (2-27-1955) was given to fellow cartoonist Jerry Marcus. The message reads "If it werent for you, Jerry, this would probably be called "Beetle Dooley" --Thanks, Mort". When Walker changed his character Spider into Beetle and had him join the Army, Marcus suggested using the last name of Saturday Evening Post editor John Bailey.
