#504 - Margaret Mitchell Typed Letter Signed Estimate: $2,000+

“I have never made talks…except brief remarks on the occasion of the premiere of ‘Gone with the Wind’”

TLS signed "Margaret Mitchell Marsh," one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, April 16, 1941. Mitchell writes to Miss Woodall, referencing the screen version of her best-seller while demonstrating her famously humble and self-effacing disposition. In part: "I thank you and the other girls are very sweet to want me to act as one of your sponsors. I feel sincerely flattered by this invitation, for such things mean more to me than you girls can ever know. I am very sorry I cannot be your sponsor. If my situation were different, nothing could give me more pleasure. But my mail is heavy, my business affairs keep me constantly occupied and I am never certain when I will be in town. More than that, I have never made talks, even of an informal nature, except brief remarks on the occasion of the premiere of 'Gone with the Wind.' I must speak frankly, and I hope you girls will understand. I have been so busy in the past five years that I have been unable to accept any invitations to sponsor various classes in Atlanta schools." In fine condition. A most interesting association with the timeless screen adaptation of Micthell's legendary, and only, novel! Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
