TLS signed “Margaret Mitchell Marsh,” one page, 8.25 x 10.75, personal letterhead, June 3, 1948. Letter to David Grunbaum at the Bookman Literary Agency in Denmark, in part: "In the package to you are two boxes of cigars. They cost $6.25 each, which brings the total on them to $12.50. I am sorry but the cost of cigars has advanced somewhat since the war. These are the better quality cigars…I tried to get different varieties of cigars, not knowing your taste. In the package to Mrs. Grunbaum are two sacks of gluten flour, five pounds in each sack, at $2.50 a sack…There are also nine pounds of rice…In the next box I will send two cans of pineapple, the only variety I can find in Atlanta at present…You will note that approximately half your commission is in tobacco. I daresay that will please you, and I hope Mrs. Greenbaum will feel that the rice I am sending balances the cigars!" In fine condition.
