The Chase National Bank check, 6.5 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Wolfe, payable to Rogers Peet for $22.54, May 14, 1938. Wolfe’s notation at bottom reads, “Payment in full; four shirts and eyelet collars.”In fine condition. Not long after writing this check, Wolfe embarked on a two-week tour of the western National Parks, then on to the Pacific Northwest, where he contracted severe pneumonia; complications arose and he was eventually diagnosed with miliary tuberculosis of the brain, causing his death in September at the age of 37. Wolfe is decidedly scarce in any form.
