3-PG Handwritten Letter to Silent Screen Star Lillian Gish

1928. Letters. A warm, funny 3 pg. handwriten letter, dated July 10th, 1928, from H.L. Mencken to Lillian Gish. 3 separate sheets, each on Knopf stationary, each with its "American Mercury" letterhead. The letter is anecdoatal and relaxed, and has held up very nicely. Each sheet is clean and crisp and shows an even, light fold at the center, and each sheet measures 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and is a light, aqua-green. The only serious tone in the letter comes when Mencken implores Lillian Gish to vote for Al Smith. "It is a solemn and sacred duty. If we fail I'll head for a monastery" Near Fine. Item #20051
