He responds to a glowing review with an effusive thank you letter.
Autograph Letter signed: "Guy Bates Post", 1 page, 8½x11. New York, N. Y., no date. On letterhead of the Great Northern Hotel to "Dear Mr. Jacobs" [probably drama critic Harry Jacobs of The Brooklyn Eagle]. In full: "The copy of the review which you sent me came safely and I cannot express my gratitude for the fulsomeness of your article. It gave me a thrill when I read it and my little wife could not keep the tears back and mother has it by this time in San Francisco as you see it is appreciated. I wish someone or something might bring you as much happiness as you give to my little family and me. With my gratitude please accept my thanks. Good luck always". Guy Bates Post (1875-1968) appeared in 22 Broadway plays between 1901 and 1934. Among his major roles were The Virginian (1904), Omar the Tentmaker (1914) and The Masquerader (1917). In 1922, Post appeared in silent film versions of the latter two plays. In 1935, Post moved to Hollywood, and appeared in supporting film roles through 1947. Noteworthy was his performance as Louis Napoleon in the Jeannette MacDonald/Nelson Eddy musical Maytime (1937). From 1916 to 1929, Post was married to tempestuous stage singer and actress Adele Ritchie ("the Dresden China Prima Donna"), who would murder a professional rival and then taker her own life in a 1930 tabloid ending. Post later married another prominent stage actress, Lillian Kemble Cooper. Multiple mailing folds. Toned. Moisture damage at bottom edge. Notches at bottom edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
