    Alice Toklas Autograph Letter Signed "Alice Toklas", one page, 5.25" x 8.25", Paris, May 10, 1950. To Mrs. Mitchell: "The beauty of the white lilacs and the mauve tulips - your kindness in sending them quite overwhelms me - our brief meeting was a great pleasure to me - The glorious flowers are completely unmerited but they are giving me so much pleasure that I can only say thanks and thank you again..." Very fine condition.
    Noted companion of writer Gertrude Stein, she wrote about their life together in What Is Remembered. Stein, in turn, entitled her autobiography The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, and wrote about herself as seen through Toklas's eyes.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
