Lot 613: ALS signed "Frederic R.," two pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.25 x 6.75, Players Club letterhead, no date. Letter to actor Ottis Skinner, in full: "I have your nice notice this morning. You have got red blood in your neck. I am very thankful and its one on me. Fact is—d—the critics. You went up and you understood what I am driving at and told the folks that what I call the highest critism [sic]—I cant paint and that aint all my faults either since people are out gunning for moats, but I ain't giving the snap away, to the Press. Any d— idiot can tell what's wrong but its takes 4 stories above one's eyebrows to keep what's 'right.' Thank you old man. I'll remember you & I'll be at your funeral if you are buried by the corporation. We will do a turn some day." A rust mark to first page, light scattered soiling, and a tape-repaired tear to top edge of signed page, otherwise fine condition.
