TAYLOR CALDWELL
Caldwell signed this typed letter to Wes Baleria in 1951. In it, she thanks him for his compliments on her novel This Side of Innocence, even though she doesn't think it's her best novel, and suggests he reads her new book Never Victorious Never Defeated.
Typed letter signed "Miss Taylor Caldwell". 1 page, 7x10¼. Eggertsville, New York, May 6, 1954. Addressed to Mr. Wes Baleria, Whitter, California. In full: "Dear Mr. Baleria: Thank you so very much for your letter of February 16 and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I am very happy that you liked THIS SIDE OF INNOCENCE even though I don't consider it my best book. I am so sorry but I don't have any pictures of myself probably because I don't take good pictures and so I cannot send you one. I am wondering if you have read my new book NEVER VICTORIOUS NEVER DEFEATED which I think is much better than THIS SIDE OF INNOCENCE. If you read it please let me know what you think of it. Thank you so much for your interest and for your kindness in writing me. Cordially yours".
