MARY ELLEN CHASE. Autograph Letter signed: "Mary Ellen Chase". 2p, 6¼x7½. On personal letterhead. Windswept, Petit Manan Point, Millbridge, Maine, August 19, no year. To "Dear Mr. Roberts". Signed on page 2. In full: "At last the speech is going in full to Miss Osgood. Tell her to cut it as she sees fit. I'm sorry not to have done it before, but it really meant hours in getting it in shape - and I confess to a program of Works and Days all summer. I have exemplified all the [illegible] except bee culture, and perhaps may claim even to that one since I have been stung often in other agricultural pursuits!! I have no mind at all any more, but - what hands! Yours,". Chase (1887-1973) wrote novels (Mary Peters, 1934; Windswept, 1941), children's books (The Story of Lighthouses, 1965) and three autobiographical works, all of which carried the strong regional favor of her native Maine. She also wrote biblical studies (Life and Language in the Old Testament, 1955). Ink note (unknown hand) at top of first page. Slightly creased. Mounting tape remnants at top of page 1 and bottom of page 2. Page two has been slightly trimmed at bottom. Otherwise, fine condition.
