1944. Item #21578
DE VOTO, Bernard. Typed Letter Signed. One page on personalized stationery, dated October 25, 1944. To NBC's Margaret Cuthbert, De Voto questions what role he is to have in a proposed broadcast and suggests a sample from a similar program be sent to him. "If it's something I feel qualified to do, there appears to be no reason why I can't come down on December 30 to tackle `Typee.' I don't think I'd feel at home with `Monte Cristo.' You've set up something of a record by making a list that had `Huck Finn' and my name on it and not joining us, and I'm duly grateful. Sincerely yours, Bernard De Voto." Light paper clip indentation. $50.00.
