Description: 1 page, 10.25 x 7 inches, New York, March 7, 1963. Written to constitutional attorney Howard Meyer who took exception to a review of MacDonald by literary critic Richard Gilman, in large part: "Thank you so much for your note about Richard Gilman, and his extraordinary attack on my book in The New Republic. No, I did not either run away with his wife or fail to do so. In fact I have never met him and am completely mystified by his animus. The only explanation I can think of is that he is the 'new gun in town,' and that, as in The Gunfighter, he wants to knock off the old killer..." Horizontal folds; staple in the upper left corner. Very good condition.
Comments: Gilman gave a scathing review of Macdonald's Our Invisible Poor.Signed: Y
