About this Item

American playwright whose many works include "The Fabulous Mrs. Fair" (1920). TLS, 1p, 7¼" X 10½", Santa Barbara, CA, 1920 June 25. Addressed to noted playwright Augustus Thomas (1857-1934). Very good. Bit of edgewear. In part: "I am very happy that you liked 'MRS. FAIR' and regret that I was not there to hear you say so. I am out here watching my nine year old who went rather to the bad physically becoming an expert on a horse and in the water and in consequence am very happy. I didn't think anything could add much to my feeling of content until I received the wire. It added not a little to the general joy." Thomas may have attended the premiere of "The Fabulous Mrs. Fair," which debuted about this time. Forbes' pleasure and relief at Thomas's congratulatory telegram can well be imagined, for Thomas was a theatre heavyweight whose opinion could affect a new play's success.
