    "Much love - Ernie"

    [Ernest Hemingway]. Christmas Card from Ernest Hemingway to his Mother, With Handwritten Greeting, Signed "Ernie."

    A charming Christmas card from Ernest Hemingway which reads: "Dear Mother: Merry Christmas from Pauline, Pat, Greg and me. Hope you got moved out all right. Good to hear youre [sic] having so much success. We are here for next several months. Give my best to Mr. Thomas Wilson. Much love - Ernie." Then written as a postscript: "Have been swamped with work or would have written before. Thanks for your two good letters. Stuff not yet arrived."

    The card is undated, but was probably written between 1931 (the year of younger son Gregory's birth) and 1940 (the year Hemingway and his second wife Pauline were divorced).

    A lovely, personal item from Hemingway to his mother, in fine condition.
