Typed Letter signed: "our [love] to you/Lynn", 1 page, 7x10. Naples, Florida, 1972 March 18. On letterhead of the Beachcomber Club to Casey Walters, St. Clare's Hospital, New York, N.Y. In full: "Chuck has written me that you are not well and we both want to sendyou our commiserations. In our time, we have had some beauties, especially Alfred, so we speak with a feeling heart. We will get news of you from Chuck and Paula and will be waiting for it. Meanwhile, we send our love and a quick, quick, quick recovery. Love". Postscript in her hand: "P.S. shall be in Wisconsin in ten days". Accompanied by matching, unsigned envelope (7½x4) typed to same addressee, postmarked Naples, Florida, March 20, 1972. English born actress Lynn Fontanne (1892-1983) was a Broadway star for nearly 50 years, beginning in 1910. She was married to her frequent co-star, Alfred Lunt, from 1922 until his death in 1977. Although the Lunts scored Oscar nominations for the film version of their Broadway performance in The Guardsmen (1931), they generally shunned films in favor of live theater. They were co-recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1964) and Lifetime Achievement Tony awards (1970). In 1980, Lynne Fontanne accepted Kennedy Center honors on behalf of the "First Couple of the Theatre". Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
