"I have often wondered during this last strange year how any writer who produces a successful first novel ever finds time to write a second one!"
Description                           Estimate: $2,000+          

TLS signed “Peggy Mitchell Marsh,” one page, 7 x 10.5, personal letterhead, October 14, 1937. Letter to Doctor Boland, in part: "I thank you and Mrs. Harper for your compliment in thinking that I could write a scenario of Dr. Long's achievements. But I am not the person to do it, as I know less than nothing about the technique of movie writing…Realizing my complete ignorance, I refused to have anything to do with the scenario of my own novel…To be quite honest, if it lay in my power to write scenarios I would not be able to do one about Doctor Long, because these days there are not enough hours in the twenty-four for me to attend to all the pressing business matters, foreign contracts, mail, editors et cetera which crowd in upon me. I have often wondered during this last strange year how any writer who produces a successful first novel ever finds time to write a second one!" In very good to fine condition, with creasing and areas of thin paper to the top edge. Mitchell, of course, never wrote another novel, adding to the mystique surrounding her lone, great work.
