ALS signed “Anne,” one page, 8.5 x 11, August 16, 1971. Written from Les Monts-de-Corsier in Switzerland, a letter to journalist Alden Whitman of the New York Times, in which she declines an offer to interview for her new book, Bring Me a Unicorn: Diaries and Letters of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1922-1928. Her amusing reasoning, in part: "Writers, since they wish their books to be read, do require some announcements or publicity, but when the publicity becomes too great and too unrelated to the subject at hand, it only clutters up their lives with an appalling amount of unnecessary mail: requests, demands to write, speak, address girl scouts, women's clubs, church groups, provide material for high-school themes and old hats to be auctioned off at charity bazaars etc etc—all of the which makes it practically impossible to write another book. I suppose what I am saying is that thanks and I do feel there has been an increase in personal publicity lately, and we would like to withdraw into a quieter life, with more time to think and write books and see our children and grandchildren." In very good to fine condition, with some creasing.
