#8 - James M. Barrie Estimate: $500+

Barrie updates Minnie Fiske on a potential role in "P. Pan"

Scottish novelist and playwright (1860-1937) best remembered as the creator of Peter Pan. ALS signed “J. M. Barrie,” one page, 5.5 x 7, Adelphi Terrace House letterhead, October 28, 1921. Letter to Mrs. Fiske White, in full: “Thank you for your letter. I had not forgotten tho’ and if an opportunity arrives I hope you will play in something of mine. The part of P. Pan however, was definitively arranged for yesterday so in that matter nothing can be done. With kind regards.” In fine condition, with show-through from a stain on the reverse. Minnie Maddern Fiske was one of the leading American actresses of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century who led a fight against the Theatrical Syndicate for the sake of artistic freedom. She is widely considered one of the most important actresses on the American stage in the first quarter of the 20th century. Letters by Barrie referring to his most famous creation are quite scarce.
