Handwritten and typed letter from W. C. Fields, signed “The great man,” three pages, 8.5 x 11, June 14 and 15, 1943. The handwritten portion is addressed to "Carlotta," and reads, in part: "There has been little said re. the disturbance in San Diego in L. A. papers, but I felt with all those gobs there, street brawls would be imminent. Sailors according to the press here say the gobs in Phila attack everyone. They attack people wearing bow ties, any excuse will do. Bill Morrow who has been writing the Benny show said he would come over here Sunday." The typed portion, dated a day later, reads, in part: "Mickey Mouse had decided to stay for the ravioli and we will drink your health. Neel has just called up and is coming over and Mickey Mouse says she will stay to dinner which pleases me no end. The fly in the 'erntment'' is that Leone will stay and supervise the food…Mickey Mouse and I both send our love and I know that if Mr. Leone was not pre-occupied in the culinary department he would do likewise." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope.
