“I get so many [letters]—sometimes 200 or more a week”

Uncommon ALS, one page, 8.5 x 11, December 28, 1965. Hughes writes to a fan. In full: “Forgive me for not writing you a real letter. I get so many—sometimes 200 or more a week—which physically I simply can’t answer personally. But I do send you my best wishes and greetings before I fly off to Paris tomorrow. Again, forgive….” Mild handling wear, faint water spot to one word, and tiny edge tears (tape repair to one lightly showing through), otherwise fine condition. R&R COA.
