RUPERT HUGHES. Autograph Letter signed: "Rupert", 1p, 7¾x9½. Los Angeles, California, 1949 August 26. On personal letterhead to journalist Louis Sobol, c/o "The American", New York. In full: "I called up your hotel here, only to learn that you had 'checked out,' which is better than being chucked out, but equally bad news for me. I wanted to thank you for your typically gracious and generous words about my speech at the Milton Berle dinner, published in this morning's Examiner. You have a big warm heart and a beg warm vocabulary, and everybody loves you. I expect to be in New York in October and shall hope to see you then. With every good wish and much gratitude, I am Yours forever". Rupert Hughes (1872-1956), the uncle and mentor of Howard Hughes, was an author, screenwriter and composer who wrote more than 50 books. One of his most controversial works was a three-volume biography depicting the human side of George Washington. Ink notation (unknown hand) in lower margin. Date stamp in upper margin. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
