“I think it was easier and we were happier fighting all the difficulties and dangers of our pioneer life”
Description  

ALS signed “Laura Ingalls Wilder,” two pages on the reverse and inner panel of a Christmas card depicting the Magi traveling toward Bethlehem, 3.75 x 5, December 5, 1947. In full: “You ask what I think of life today. I will say this—I think it was easier and we were happier fighting all the difficulties and dangers of our pioneer life than anyone is fighting the complicated system of life that has been thrust upon us now. Space is too small to say what I think of it but I am hoping that conditions will change if we all do our best to bring it about.” The Christmas card is also signed below the printed sentiment by Laura, “Mr. & Mrs. A. J. Wilder.” In fine condition. Wilder based her enduring Little House series on her own experiences growing up in a pioneer family; her books and their screen adaptations have inspired within following generations a similar sense of nostalgia for the pioneer life, as she expresses here. Wilder is scarce in any form, and the excellent content and condition of this piece make it a particularly remarkable example. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
