ALS signed “W.,” one page both sides, 8 x 10.5, no date but postmarked December 3, 1941. Letter to Carlotta Monti, a singer-actress and his mistress. In part: “I recd. your curt wire some weeks ago, saying send me $1000.00. You made no mention of the book Shoes of Happiness I had sent you several weeks previous nor made any comment on the article ‘Sing Sucker Sing.’ Ignored everything. It felt to me as though you had one of those real intelligent palsie walsies with you and you were going to show them the way you did things. Consequently I ignored it. I had a phone message from Weikert saying the case had been postponed until late in June and that he had, had word from you that you would be present for the trial. I shouldn’t say trial. It will be the same sort of affair as the last one no press permitted. My guess is that when Rhoe finds you really mean business, he will borrow the money from Wright and pay you off and Loyd will probably add it to my bill.” Intersecting folds with one repaired separation at center and a trivial dampstain to one edge, otherwise fine condition. Fields met Monti in 1932 and they began a sporadic, tumultuous relationship that lasted for the rest of his life. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
