Receipt signed: "Michael Strange" in pencil, 1p, 8¼x10¾. No place, 1929 January 8. Strange signs at the bottom of a handwritten letter from Rushmore, Bisbee & Stern, New York, acknowledging receipt of an "enclosed contract and letter in the Leigh-Emmerich matter." [items not included]. Poet, playwright and actress Blanche Marie Louise Oelrichs (1890-1950) used the pen and stage name Michael Strange. A real estate heiress and debutante active in the women's suffrage movement, she published her first book, Miscellaneous Poems, in 1916. The second of her three husbands was stage and silent film star John Barrymore. Actress Diana Barrymore was their daughter. Strange's first Broadway play, Claire de Lune (1921), starred John and Ethel Barrymore. In 1936, Strange commenced a popular New York City radio program of poetry and music, eventually accompanied by a full orchestra. She also lectured, which sheds some light on this correspondence. Leigh-Emmerich was a lecture bureau. Binder holes at top. Pencil note (unknown hand) in upper left corner. Overall, fine condition.
