    P.G. Wodehouse Typed Letter Signed. One page, 6.25" x 7", New York, December 20, 1966. A letter declining Norman Cousins' invitation to contribute a piece to the Saturday Review. Although a regular reader and fan of the publication, Wodehouse claims, "I have never been able to do the 'straight' stuff. If there is anything you want from me, it would have to be in the humorous vein." The letter has some annotations both in pen and pencil, written in an unknown hand. Wodehouse is known for his humorous stories, and was very popular during the 20th century.

    Condition: Lightly toned, slight crease along the horizontal fold, small staple holes in top corner. Light soiling on verso.
