“YOU HAVE A GOOD AND ORIGINAL TALENT”: SIGNED LETTER BY JAMES THURBER

THURBER, James. Typed letter signed. West Cornwall, Connecticut. August 2, 1951. One page, measuring 8-1/2 by 11 inches, typed on recto only. $450.

Typed letter from James Thurber to poet Addison Barker.

James Thurber wrote to poet Addison Barker, praising Barker’s writing:

“Dear Mr. Barker:

I’m sorry I haven’t answered your letter and poems before, but plead a stack of work and letters. I liked all three of the new poems. You have a good and original talent. Right now I face two deadlines and I couldn’t promise to read your pieces promptly, but I would enjoy reading them if there is no great urgency, and hope you will send them on. Come to think of it, the urgency has probably waned with my delay. I suppose you are sending them to magazines, too.

Sincerely yours,

James Thurber”

A wonderful letter, no doubt treasured by the recipient, in fine condition.
