FREDERIC REMINGTON
Remarkable signed, handwritten letter to a friend, describing his Florida vacation plans in very vivid detail. Remington has included a drawing of himself sketching an alligator.
ALS: "Frederic R", 1 page, 7x8¾. No date, no place, but Florida. To unnamed correspondent. Begins: "Dear One". In full: "That's better than I expected - I have had the grip and been d-- sick - I have got catarrel [sic, catarrhal] to beat hell - I am going to die or take the old lady and pull for  the palmetos _ which I do on Florida Special tomorrow - how long? The length is decided by how my money holds out - that's the motive -- Three weeks if I like it -- a year if you will come and bring Madam. Going to take a shot-gun and I am going in for sport. No d-- high diddle diddle in a big cave full of niggers and dudes. -- Clear shooting and I want to feel a big tarpon pull. Going Jacksonville - Tampa -- & think far south -- Will write you -- but its too good to think you will come -- If you did -- me boy we would have some fun -- Got sketching kit want to shoot alligator. -- want to draw nigger -- want rest and good old fashioned loaf." In the top margin, Remington has sketched an artist (himself) at an easel painting a large alligator with its mouth open; a palm tree is in the background. Known primarily for his depictions of cowboys and Indians of the American West in paintings and bronze sculptures, Remington was also an illustrator who traveled widely. In 1898, he covered the Spanish-American War in Cuba. Lightly creased, 1-inch separation at right mid-horizontal fold touching one word. Chipped just below fold in blank right margin. Stain at bottom left corner. Shaded from stains on verso.
