ALS signed “J. K. Rowling (Jo),” one page both sides, 5.75 x 4, personal embossed owl letterhead, September 6, 2013. Letter to James Traver, in full: "Your brother Richard has written to me to explain why you never contacted me after I wrote to you a few years ago. You have clearly been through more than anyone should be asked to bear. From what Richard tells me, you are a gifted person who has had some very tough breaks. I never forgot the boy who had to go to court to come and see me. The address I gave you is still the correct one—feel free to use it if you ever have the urge!" In very fine condition. Accompanied by the original envelope. One of 10 winners in a 2007 national 'Why I Love Reading Harry Potter' essay contest, 13-year-old James Traver won $750, a copy of the new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and trips (along with his foster dad) to New York and London.
