Three items: two ALSs, one signed “W. S. Maugham,” and one signed “Willie,” each one page, 5.25 x 8.25 and 5.25 x 7, no dates but one letter is postmarked March 2, 1929. The first letter concerns hospital arrangements for a sickly friend. The second, in full: “I was shocked & deeply distressed to hear that Kate Mary had died. I dined with her only a few days ago & she was in high spirits. I had no idea that she was so ill. I can only hope now that she died without pain.” Third is an ink signature, “W. Somerset Maugham, San Francisco, 16.1.41,” on an off-white 6 x 8 sheet. In overall fine condition, with two vertical folds and trivial toning to signature, and a spot of soiling to one letter. Accompanied by an original mailing envelope, addressed in Maugham’s own hand. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
