A typed letter signed by Mary Pickford to the American illustrator Paul C. Burns (1910-1990), thanking him for offering to send an illustration

Large octavo, one page, on Pickford's personal letterhead, 14 May 1955.

Folded once for posting; traces of prior mounting to the verso of the top margin; in excellent condition.

Pickford writes to accept the offer from Burns of 'the original of the illustration of "The Wife Who Had Everything". I shall be so happy to receive it because it does resemble my husband to a great degree'. The illustration accompanied a story by Louis and Irene Kittle Kamp in Colliers Magazine, 18 March 1955. Pickford continues: 'Perhaps sometime when we are in New York you will have an opportunity to see for yourself how very much your idealized character and my Buddy resemble each other'. Offered with an uncommon publicity photograph (228 × 177 mm, credited in the negative to Hartsook) of Pickford as a young starlet, rubber-stamped with a facsimile signature. Apart from a tiny crease to one corner, and a few marks and traces of prior mounting on the verso, it is in excellent condition. [2 items].
