Lot 9012: ALS signed "Amelia Earhart," one page both sides, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, December 20, 1932. Letter to Mrs. Grosvenor. In part: "You were kind, indeed, to ask…me to your pleasant luncheon on Saturday last. We enjoyed ourselves exceedingly…I hope the Christmas season which seemed to be starting in with such a will that day (at least as far as weather is concerned) will prove a glorious one for you and Dr. Grosvenor. Anyway the best wishes and thanks of the Putnams follow you throughout." In fine condition, with show-through from writing to opposing sides. This letter is presumably to the daughter of Alexander Graham Bell, Elsie May Bell, who was married to Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor, the first full-time editor of National Geographic Magazine. A nice association piece.
