About this Item

WISTER, Owen. Two Autograph letters signed, dated 8 July 1928 and 11 July 1929. Writing to "Dear Ex-Merimont" "Medical science decrees that since a son of mine goes to-day to Wyoming for the rest of the summer, there's a chance for me & My rheumatism to go with him to high airs & dry. But my notes & writing pad go too, and I hope to bring back my allotted chapter for the S.P.S. History. I asked your son how many miles on Last Night he had walked between his seat and the Prize Table. Yours, O.W." Wister, the author of The Virginian and other Westerns, refers to St. Paul's School, in Concord, Hew Hampshire. In the second letter, Wister writes from Vichy thanking his St. Paul's School classmate for sending news of a "great honor" awarded to Wister. "Here I be, trying to get my mortal machine repaired; and the stunts and renunciations they're putting me through are beginning to work--so that I'm going to be able to continue a book I had to leave off writing away back in March." Wister continues with a memory of Joseph Coit, the Rector of St. Paul's. Bookseller Inventory # 65089
