STEINBECK JOHN (1902-1968)

Lettre autographe signée adressé à l'acteur Oliver BURGESS MEREDITH «Stockholm. Hôtel Plaza», 25 juillet [1947], 1 page in-4 à l'encre signée «John» en anglais
Lettre inédite de Steinbeck qui, visitant l'Europe après la guerre, écrit de Stockholm à l'acteur Burgess Meredith. La lettre est également relative au photographe Robert
Capa.
Steinbeck précise que les Français sont un peuple très immoral.
«Dear Burgess: Your letters were received just before I left Paris. The french are a very immoral people. But Honest Jake Puff made Gwyn a very beautiful dress - walk upstairs and save $5. Stockholm is a fine town. There is a report here that you are going to play Winterset here. Is this true? We leave Monday for Uncle Joe's cabin. I have no idea what we will find there but I hope it is all right. Capa is in good shape. Now he is in the country photographing farmers and farmers daughters I guess. I hope your opening [WINTERSET at the Gaiety in Dublin, Ireland] is triumphant and it is bound to be. I wish it were my play [Steinbeck's abandoned play THE LAST JOAN]. For two days I have been out amongst the archipelago sporting about in a boat and I feel very good. Boats are fine things. If you need to get word to me it can be c/o Joe Newman, Herald Tribune bureau, Moscow. Try it! It will be interesting to see whether it gets through. Good luck and love to Paulette [Goddard]».
