ELIZABETH L. POST
TLS from "granddaughter-in-law" of Emily Post, who carried on her work
Typed Letter signed: "Elizabeth L. Post", 1 page, 8½x11. New York, N.Y., 1966 January 4. On letterhead of the Emily Post Institute, Inc. to "Dear Miss Hines", in full: "Emily Post herself is no longer living, but your letter has been delivered to me as I am carrying on her work, and have recently revised her book, 'Etiquette'. Although my signature can never have the value or interest that hers will always carry, I have presumed to sign your envelope as her granddaughter-in-law. [Separate item not included.] Sincerely". After Emily Post published Etiquette: the Blue Book of Social Usage in 1922, her name became a synonym for good manners. She edited 9 more editions before her death in 1960. Elizabeth L. Post (1920-2010), the wife of Emily Post's grandson, screened numerous applicants before deciding that she herself could do a better job of editing subsequent editions of Etiquette. She soon had a column in Good Housekeeping, and was syndicated in many newspapers. Her The New Emily Post Etiquette (1975) adapted to changing customs, legitimizing "doggy bags", accepting "BYOB" cocktail parties, and recommending wedding apparel for a pregnant bride. She drew back from other changes, however, criticizing divorce announcements and public breast feeding. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
