Description: 1 page, 11 x 7.25 inches, Atlanta, June 29, 1937. Rare letter signed "Margaret Mitchell Marsh," declining an invitation to a party because it conflicts with her wedding anniversary, in full: "Dear Miss Hall: Sue Myrick forwarded to me your invitation, and John and I appreciate it so very much. I know the party will be lots of fun and I only wish we could come, but Sunday is our wedding anniversary and we have already made plans to spend it with friends. I admit that the temptation to break this engagement is strong, because I liked Milledgeville so much when I was there at the Press meeting. And also, I would love to attend your party as Prissy. (That is the only role my size would warrant. The costume would be cheap, too --just a croker sack and ten cents' worth of shoe polish. We do appreciate your invitation so much, and I shall look forward to Sue's description of the party." Two horizontal folds and slight foxing; very good condition.

Thank you very much for the fast delivery of my books. They were exactly in the condition you described and one of the volumes contained a very interesting dinner invitation and menu. Thank you very much, as well, for cost-effectively sending parcel via normal US Post. - C. Wallace
