In full: "Dear Sally I could not resist writing to thank you for the nice time you showed Osa yesterday - she came home all full of enthusiasm and said she had had the nicest time that she has experienced since re-turning from Africa. You and Jimmie have done much for us and I want you to know we appreciate it. Sincerely,". Lightly toned and rippled. Folded twice horizontally and vertically. Otherwise in fine condition.

With one purple-and-white 3ยข Washington stamp affixed. Pencil notation on front in unknown hand. Lightly toned, creased and rippled, otherwise in fine condition. Johnson (1884-1937, born in Rockford, Illinois) was an American movie producer, director, cinematographer and writer. He left home at 14 and worked his way to Europe on a cattle boat, then joined author Jack London on his round-the-world cruise on the Snark. Johnson's first movie credit is as a cinematographer on Jack London's Adventures in the South Sea Islands (1913). Eight years later, he produced his first film, Jungle Adventures (1921), a documentary set in Borneo and the first of 20 documentaries and shorts by him set in the South Seas, Africa, Australia and Africa. Starting with Across the World with Mr. and Mrs. Johnson (1930), he also began starring in his own films with his wife Osa. Johnson also wrote the story for Simba: King of the Beasts (1928), based on his and Osa's four-year safari in Kenya and Abyssinia (now Ethiopia and Eritrea).
