Description: 2 pages on "Margaret Mitchell Marsh Estate letterhead," 10.25 x 7.25 inches, Atlanta, June 11, 1954. This important and strongly-stated letter was written by Margaret Mitchell's brother, Stephens Mitchell, to the editor of "Look Magazine" to dispel a printed rumor that Mitchell had help in researching her wildly popular novel, "Gone with the Wind," in part: "...ever since the sudden success of 'Gone With the Wind,' the rumor has arisen that this or that person wrote the book, or helped with the writing or research. These rumors included even me, and Mrs. Marsh's husband...I -- and no one else, except her husband -- ever saw "Gone With the Wind" until it was in its final typescript...and no one else has any right to claim any part of it..." Natural folds; staple holes in the upper left corners, but still in very good condition.

Howdy and Happy Fourth of July. Just want to let you know that the Dick Grace book came. A nice copy, as promised. Grace was quite a fellow: the only person I ever heard of who crashed planes for a living and died of old age. I was in The Argosy once, years ago, 1997 or so. Hope to get in again one of these days, but NYC is a long way from here. Thanks again for helping me out with this. Best - Bob H.
