Simon Two Letters from a Mother to Her Child, with integrated naive drawings, August 1929. .Boston MA.10806
Price: $95.00

Two whimsical letters from a mother to one of her two daughters, Elizabeth Simon (nicknamed Betty). The first letter mentions a visit to their cousin Ruth, who has two cats on her roof. The missive continues on asking her how here hay fever is doing and if she has had anytime to play with the kitten next door. Lastly it mentions the mother has been so busy that morning that even though it is 11 AM, she still hasn't had time to fix her hair.The letter is embellished with four pen and ink drawing- two cats on a roof of house, little girl playing with cats, four children riding on a horse, and two children playing in the water. The second letter is longer than the first. It starts with the mother telling Betty that she has been feeling better lately, though her hip is hurting her pretty badly so she will most likely stop riding soon. It discusses a visit from their Aunt and a picnic lunch she had a Lake Waldon. There she watched several children on a water slide. She then inquires after what Betty has been doing in her spare time and if she has any stories to share, such as a stubbed toe perhaps or a bee landed on her nose? It ends with the hope that Betty will borrow her sister's, Barbara's, water wings to help her float.  In-text drawings of  a water slide, a child landing in the water, and presumably Betty with a bee on her nose. Measures 5 1/4" x 3 1/4" (folded card) . The envelope is toned due to age and the letters themselves some minor soiling, otherwise fine.

Frank Hiram Crosby Letter from a Commission Merchant regarding Wood and Flour on French's Hotel Letterhead. .New York.1859
Price: $125.00

A letter written by Frank Hiram Crosby, most likely a commission merchant, in New York. It is unclear who he is writing to, but in the letter he discusses the price of flour he purchased, three to five cents per pound, and the sale of wood. He goes into some about of detail regarding the wood, as it seems as though it was harvested from two different locations, one of which produced a higher quality wood, and therefore fetched a better price. The letter concludes with the recommendation that the recipient get in touch with the foreman of the lumber company to see if they can purchase next season's wood from the preferred location in advanced. The letter itself is written on a letterhead from the French's Hotel in New York, where a single room was 50 cents per day and the letterhead request that one should "not believe runners or hackmen who say we are full."  Measures 9 1/4" x 13 3/4" ..
