AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS)

Hamden, CT. Letter. A two-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to Signor Cameramer on both sides of a 6" x 3-3/4" Deepwood Drive index card with two holes punched in the left margin. In full: "Many thanks for your letter, for your generous invitation, and for the copies of the Quaderni. These last few years I have delivered many lectures -- especially last year at Harvard. The result has been that I have now taken a 'vow' not to speak in public for a number of years. My many visits to Italy have been a constant joy. I hope to make many more, and soon. I particularly wish--for the first time--to visit Turin. I hope then to have the pleasure of calling on and hearing more from you about the work of the A.C.I. I have been reading the Quaderni with much interest. I particularly appreciated the paper on the sonnets of Belli, and the pages of Mario Praz -- always so largely master of his theme. Many thanks again for your letter, and much regret that at this time I cannot take part in your Association's work. Sincerely yours, Thornton Wilder." The QUADERNI ACI (Associazione Culturale Italiana) was a periodical published in Turin. Some light wrinkling, otherwise Fine with exceptional content. Item #020612
