Rice types a letter to a friend apologizing for the delay in answering, due to his busy schedule
Typed Letter Signed: "Elmer Rice", 1p, 8½x11. Stamford, Connecticut, 1944 December 29. On his personal imprinted letterhead to Bud. In full: "I am sorry to have been so long in answering your letter of November 21st but I really have been extremely busy. And, since there is every prospect of my continuing to be busy for the next six months at least, I do not see how I can undertake to serve on your committee. I do think that your project has good possibilities, though I must say that I was not greatly impressed by the copy of the magazine which you sent me. However, as you say, it is probably a matter of getting contributors organized. Anyhow, I wish you lots of luck with it and send you my best wishes for the New Year." American playwright Elmer Rice (1892-1967) had his first success with On Trial (1914). Rice, who won the 1929 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Street Scene, also wrote novels and essays. From 1942-1956, he was married to stage and screen actress Betty Field (1913-1973). Erased note at upper left. Lightly creased with folds, light vertical fold at the second "e" in Elmer. Chipped at upper right blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
