    Anna Mary Robertson Moses - "Grandma Moses" Autograph Letter Signed "Mrs. T. S. Moses." One page, 6.5" x 10", in pencil, Eagle Bridge, New York, May 26, 1932, to noted New York art dealer, Mr. Lewis Caldor, with the original transmittal envelope. The renowned American folk artist writes, in full:

    "Received the parcle [sic] O.K. yesterday. Was sorry to hear that you had had such a bad cold. It was thoughtless of me not to have let you have a blanket or rug for the car when it was so damp. But I all wise [sic] think of things when it is to [sic] late. That was a terrible trip. You will hardly want to see the north country again. I'm just getting better of a sore throat and croup, so have not painted. Think I will have two pictures by the last of the week. Hope that you are now completely well. Will be glad to see you when ever [sic] it is convenient for you to come. As ever your friend." She adds the postscript: "Excuse lead pencil as my pen has gone to school".

    With old, smoothed folds, else in fine condition.
