Description: “Father of Western fiction” Owen Wister penned this brief, apologetic letter on December 11, 1932. The letter reads in full: “Dear Sir: If the impression that I answered your question upon my return at the end of October is wrong, I am sorry, and beg that you will ask it again; I do not remember what it was, and your letter is gone. Yours truly Owen Wister”.

Written on a 9 1/2″ x 6″ sheet of stationery imprinted: “Long House Bryn Mawr Pennsylvania”. Item #A01575

Owen Wister was a writer and historian who is best remembered for his novel The Virginian and a biography of Ulysses S. Grant. .

Condition: Mailing fold lines, the letter  is adhered to one of those ubiquitous “sticky” page photo albums and the glue from the page has migrated to the recto of the letter leaving light tidy stripes.  Otherwise very good condition with a strong signature.
