LOUIS BROMFIELD. Typed Letter signed: "Louis Bromfield", 1p, 8x10. Senlis (France), 1933 May 10. To Lester Roberts, New York, N.Y. In full: "Thanks for your note of April 23rd about the radio talk and about the books. It was very good of you to write and I appreciate it more than I can say. I regret to say that I have no photographs to send you. I suggest that you write to my publisher, Harper & Brothers, 49 East 33rd St, New York, who should have a supply on hand. With the best of wishes, I am Yours faithfully." Bromfield (1896-1956) won the Pulitzer Prize for his third novel, Early Autumn (1926). No less than ten of his novels, including The Rains Came and Mrs. Parkington, were made into films. At the time of this letter, Bromfield was living in France, a country he had learned to love as a soldier in World War I. There he entertained many cultural celebrities, including Picasso and Hemingway. Returning to his native Ohio in the late 1930s, he established Malabar Farm to implement his innovative ideas on agriculture. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were married there in 1945. Lightly creased. 1-inch tear in lower right. Otherwise, fine condition.
