KATE FIELD
The eccentric actress and journalist writes, "I am deep in Mormonism which is organized treason".
Autograph Letter signed: "Kate Field", 1 page, 5¾x9. Washington, D. C., 1886 May 23. On letterhead of the Weleker's Hotel to Mrs. Henry G. Allen, Grand Rapids, Michigan. In full: "What can I write? Now I am deep in Mormonism which is organized treason, and the sooner the people find out this fact, the better for the country. Very truly". Kate Field (1838-1896) was an American journalist who dabbled in stage comedy, song, dance and recitation. She also organized an unsuccessful Cooperative Dress Association in New York. She had more success as a journalist, reporting from Europe for various American publications and giving lectures upon her return. In 1889, she established a journal of her own, Kate Field's Washington. She had a very warm and lasting friendship with British novelist Anthony Trollope. Shortly after she wrote this letter, Field embarked on a new lecture tour with a talk titled, "The Mormon Monster." Normal mailing folds. Lightly toned. Top right corner stained. Bottom right corner worn. Crease on top margin. Faint stain on top margin. 2 small slits under signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
