Lot 350: TLS, two lightly-lined pages, both sides, 8 x 10.25, March 28, 1940. Letter to his sister Mamie, in part: "There are a great many persons in the world who have the stupid habit of seeking and acting on the advice of persons who know nothing about the situation involved. Bird breeders are always complaining of them, and I have met quite a few myself. They come to buy a bird and after listening to what is said about the different birds offered, they will turn to some person who knows nothing of birds and ask that person's advice. Mother was that way. She would take the advice of persons who had raised one nest of birds and ignore mine, when I had raised hundreds." In fine condition, with intersecting folds (touching the tip of a single letter of the signature) and trivial soiling.
