Description: 1 page, 10.5 x 8 inches, Ausable Forks, New York, September 30, 1942. Written to Arthur Price at Sears and Roebuck, consenting to illustrate a catalog cover in support of the war effort, in part: "I know that art can be more effective than photography; and I know that the artist who, in this crisis, is concerned with effective propaganda there is no better medium than a Sears and Roebuck catalog cover. I am concerned about propaganda, and you can bet that I'll do everything in my power to collaborate with you..." Note: Columbia University, the repository of Rockwell Kent's correspondence with Arthur Price, is lacking this letter as part of their permanent collection.

I just received a book I ordered. I wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the condition of the book and especially how it was meticulously wrapped for shipment. I order a lot of books and your service far exceeds what I normally see from book dealers. I hope in the future I'll be able to find books I need at your book store. Keep up the good work. - Bruce V.
