Typed Letter Signed by Margaret Mitchell's brother Stephens

Atlanta: 1954. unbound. 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.

Price: $1,100.00
