American journalist and folklorist (1848–1908). ALS signed “Joel Chandler Harris, ‘Uncle Remus,’” two pages both sides, 4.25 x 5.75, no date. Letter to Miss Lillian Lewis, in part: “I was very glad indeed to hear from you as well as to receive the story, which was indeed charming. I would have answered sooner—though excuses are weak—had I not been thoroughly tied up with the Press League convention.” Double-matted and framed with a drawing of Uncle Remus conversing with Brer Rabbit to an overall size of 16 x 13.5, with a window on the reverse for viewing the first page. In fine condition, with a pair of stray ink marks. This seldom-seen “Uncle Remus” addition makes for an exceptionally desirable example. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
