    Edna Ferber Clipped Signature and Typed Letter Signed "Edna Ferber". One page, 7.5" x 10.5", on her personal letterhead, Easton, Connecticut, December 14, 1941, to Mrs. Henry Goddard Leach, New York. Ms Ferber writes this letter just a week after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and the United States entered the war. It is obvious from her letter that the war has affected her upcoming trip to England. She writes, in part: "As you probably know by now, my Flight to England has been cancelled. My reason for going no longer exists. The job now is here." Included is the lower portion of a typed letter, also to Mrs. Leach signed, as the other, in green ink. Both examples are in fine condition, exhibiting the usual fold creases. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.
