    Delightful Rose O'Neil ALS, Originator of the Famous "Kewpies" Highly artistic June 20, 1930 letter on her personal Saugatuck, Connecticut stationary. 5.5" x 8". She writes about an enclosed story "The Delectable She," in which she was working (not present). It is set in the 1880s, and O'Neil notes that "I notice at the theatres right now (as at the Roxy) there are scenes of these dresses of the 1880's which seem to amuse the public. But if Miss Jane preferred I would easily modernize the tale and leave out the last scene." Wonderful signature and on stationery with a print of two of her trademark "Kewpies," which, in their day, were as well known as any popular culture image. Extra fine, but for light pencil notation at upper LH corner. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
