IRVIN COBB. ALS: "Irvin S. Cobb", 1p, 8½x11, affixed to cardboard of same size. Santa Monica, California, 1942 August 14. To H.B. Watkins, Esq. Begins: "Dear Brother in Christ". In full: "I take it I should congratulate you in getting back your hearing - but what the Hell's the use of being able to hear these days when you hear nothing that's good? As to that gal, beware of all unattached Kentucky girls and especially Kentucky gals called Kitty. They're liable to grow up to be cats. Better start running. With all good wishes, Piously yours". Cobb was a native of Paducah, Kentucky, and his early experiences in the state figured prominently in a number of his works, including Old Judge Priest (1915), a collection of his short stories. American author, humorist and columnist Irvin Shrewsbury Cobb (1876-1944) wrote over 60 books, including Paths of Glory (1915), an account of his experiences covering WWI, and 300 short stories. Cobb, who began his journalistic career with the "Paducah Daily News" and the "Louisville Evening Post", moved to New York in 1904. There, he worked for the "Evening Sun" and "New York World" and covered WWI for the "Saturday Evening Post". Cobb's works provided the basis for a number of feature films, and Cobb himself appeared in ten films between 1932 and 1938. He hosted the 1935 Academy Awards. Lightly creased with folds, light vertical fold at the "I" of Irvin. Lightly soiled, light ink transference above one line. Lightly rippled from mounting. Overall, fine condition.
