North writes a letter of appreciation to someone who had helped him when he was a cub reporter
Typed Letter signed: "Sterling North". 1p. 8 ½ x1, The Chicago Daily News letterhead. Chicago, Illinois, 1937 September 1. To: Mrs. Bale. In full: "Dear Mrs. Bale; Thank you for sending along the latest edition of your interesting monograph on Galena. I should say I do remember you and the help you gave a cub reporter who had just two hours to "cover" Galena. Without your assistance my story would have been a rather sad affair. I am happy that you have read and liked my novels, and I do hope that some day I can write one with Galena for a background. I would want to live there for a year while writing it -- obviously an impossibility at the present time. But if I do get t' urge to write a book, I shall be tempted to impose again upon the good nature of 'Galena's antiquarian'. Sincerely," Thomas Sterling North (1906-1974) was an American author best known for his children's books. After attending the University of Chicago, he began his writing career as a reporter at the Chicago Daily News, the New York World-Telegram and then the New York Sun - then going free lance. Early successes include Midnight and Jeremiah was made into the Disney movie So Dear to my Heart (1949), Able Lincoln: Log Cabin to White House, Raccoons are the Brightest People, and Hurry Spring. Published in 1963, Rascal, his most famous work, received a Newbery Honor 1964, Sequoyah Book Award in 1966, A Young Reader's Choice Award 1966, and was made into a Disney movie in 1969. In addition, Rascal was made into a 52-eposode Japanese anime titled Araiguma Rasukaru (Racoon Rascal). Mrs. Bale has written a letter on verso-forwarding it. Normal mailing fold creases. Paper and adhesive residue at lower left margin and on verso. Creased and worn at corners. Lightly toned at edges.
