Sale 38 Lot 1315

(1905 - 1976) American industrialist and aviator, an eccentric billionaire who controlled RKO, founded the Hughes Tool Corp., and built and flew the enormous airplane "Spruce Goose". A.L.S. "Howard", 2pp, folio, on a lined yellow legal page, [n.p., n.d.], a rambling communication to his wife written in several parts: "Dearest sweetheart, Please forgive my hors de combat condition of the past week. I was truly sick in my lower innards...I love you an awful lot, and I'll not be too late tonight...". Hughes continues: "...Dearest love, I understand and I'm sorry - I am going to watch #9 - 'The Gentle Sit of Murder'. Maybe you would like to see it...". With additional long-winded content on films and actors, mentioning Dana Andrews, Anne Baxter and Walter Brennan. Very good.
Estimate $ 1,000-1,500
