EDNA FERBER. TLS: "Edna Ferber", 1p, 7¼x10½. 730 Park Avenue, 1955 September 30. To Mrs. Maria Horch, Franz J. Horch Agency, New York. In full: "Ever since our lunch a week ago, I have been wanting to write or call you. I was a complete mess that day -- from first to last -- and I really feel I owe you an apology. I was in considerable pain (which, I am happy to say, seems now to have departed) and I was so distrait that I didn't even offer you a drink before luncheon. But I know you are kind and understanding and will not hold all this against me. I am glad we asked Desch for a three-installment payment. I am sure you know the old German saying which runs roughly: 'Es ist keine nahr das fragt...' and so forth." Ferber, who received the 1925 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction for So Big, also wrote Show Boat (1926), Cimarron (1929) and Giant (1952) and co-authored Dinner at Eight with George S. Kaufman (1932). Lightly creased. Folds, horizontal fold touches signature. Fine condition.
