Description                           Estimate: $1,000+          

TLS signed “G. Bernard Shaw,” one page, 8 x 10, personal letterhead, January 10, 1936. Letter to Vernon Bartlett, in part: “On the 22nd we start on a cruise to Honolulu and thereabouts. I am so full of packing and clearing up before I leave that it is impossible for me to undertake an extra job until I am on the seas. We shall not be back until the 6th April. Besides, an article that is not on the spot in point of time is useless during the present mix-up: the weeks that would elapse before anything I could write on the voyage could reach you would put it out of date. Also, by the way, I have nothing particular to say. So I am afraid I must fail you. If I were to be at home within reach I might have a try; but as it is—! I did not know that that funny old adventure of Stead’s was still in existence. It was always fearfully crowded up, whereas your paper was very handy and concise and in large print. I hope it wont be swamped. We are horrified to hear that you have broken your leg. How much have you broken it? The expression may mean anything from combined fracture of the thigh to a simple crack in the tibia. How much sympathy, exactly, do we owe you?” In fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
