Wonderful sketch of 'The Cat in the Hat,' signed by "Ted" on vintage Dr. Seuss letterhead

Original sketch of The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss, accomplished in colored pencil and crayon on an off-white 7.25 x 10.5 sheet of vintage Dr. Seuss letterhead. The sketch shows the famous cat with a large yellow sign emerging from his hat, which reads: "Testimonial, Geisel is currently getting more fan mail about Cynthia Lindsay's article than he is about all his books combined," with Dr. Seuss signing below with his given name, "Thanks for a swell swell job! Come down and see us. oooo Ted." In very good to fine condition, with toning from prior display, and the handwriting very faded, but still completely readable. Writer and journalist Cynthia Lindsay wrote a glowing article in the December 1960 issue of Good Housekeeping entitled 'The Miracle of Dr. Seuss,' a copy of which is included with the lot.
