Lot 4032

ALS signed “Charles,” two onionskin pages, 5.5 x 8.5, September 13, 1953. Letter to "Emily," written from "Idlewild." In part: "I had hoped to contact you and stop by an hour before starting out on this trip, a trip to Michigan and Maine, Pan American Airways conferences, and a lot of last minute details prevented it. I have gone over the enclosed pages of your manuscript, and find only the very minor corrections and suggestions noted on the margins. I'm glad you decided to put in a prose section. It seems that the profile would be incomplete without it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get down to Washington…I have a great deal to do in the Capital, and will probably have to spend several days there after my present trip. A seven hour plane delay will postmark this letter at Idlewild; otherwise, it would be flying back tomorrow." In fine condition, with light toning to edges.

Estimate: $800-$1000
