Lot 607: An excellent pair of items: a pencil and watercolor sketch of a female Western gunslinger entitled "Pursuit of Gentlemen," drawn by Flagg on an off-white 7 x 8.5 sheet, signed in the lower right in pencil, "J. M. F."; and an ALS signed "Jim Flagg", one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, September 27, 1951, in part: "I am flabber as well as gasted! Your novel is out as well as rageous! It is pre as well as posterous!…I couldn't put it down except to go to the bathroom! It's awful enough to make a good movie!" Rusty paperclip impressions and toning to edges of both pages, and a tiny edge tear touching the first letter of his initials on the sketch, otherwise overall fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Flagg's hand, as well as a carbon copy of the response.
