Lot 850: Two items: an 8 x 10 matte-finish half-length photo of Rodgers with his piano, signed in the lower border in black ink, "Sincerely, Richard Rodgers"; and a TLS signed "Dick," one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, March 28, 1963. Letter to Stan Stanley, in full: "Your letter regarding the 'No Strings' recordings pleased me enormously. What interests me even more is your statement that 'The Sweetest Sounds' is 'a most important standard and a tremendous performance song.' I don't think this is too bad for a beginner–lyric writer, especially in view of the fact that he had to work with such an old composer. I hope you're right that 'Look No Further' promises to be equally successful. All in all, I'm delighted and send you my thanks." In overall fine condition. Accompanied by an unsigned photo of the composer.
