    Ronald Reagan Autograph Letter Signed "Ronnie Reagan." Two pages, 5.75" x 7.5", on The Plaza letterhead, New York, circa 1930s. Written during Reagan's acting career, Reagan addresses a screenwriter declining a part due to typecasting, in part: "You have a good story here and it should make a good picture but I feel it is too much of the thing I personally must break away from at least for a while. My career started to slip into a 'boy next door,' 'nice fellow' type of thing and I still have some of those unreleased including one in which I play a lawyer. For that reason I honestly must say no. I', d-n grateful to you for giving me a crack at it and sorry it wouldn't work out." Smoothed folds.
