Lot 135: TLS signed in colored pencil, one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, July 10, 1956. Letter to Bob and Nancy, in part: "Here Polly and I are at home again, and oh, the remorse that pursues me as I find how many delightful kindnesses we had shown us during our holiday in Europe and which I have not yet acknowledged! For instance, there is the gorgeous day you took us to Toledo. Now that I am within reach of my typewriter, I simply must thank you for all the pleasure you gave us that day. What a thrilling experience it was—the drive up the mountains of Toledo, putting my hands on the gates and the ancient walls of the city and our visit to El Greco's house. Then came the breath-taking magnificence of the Cathedral. It was all fabulous, and whetted my desire to know more of Spanish history, traditions and customs. I also remember with delight that evening when you introduced us to members of the United Nations." In fine condition. Accompanied by an unsigned glossy photo of Keller.
