6" x 7 1/2" Typed letter, signed, on recto only, on the author's custom stationery with her printed name in red as the letterhead. Signed in ink "Sincerely yours / Phoebe Atwood Taylor / April 8 - 37." Taylor relates with a bit of sadness and then some humor about how she is writing more Asey Mayo mysteries to be published in the summer, but is suffering a number of distractions in Newton Highlands, particularly her neighbor's children: "I brood about moving to Wellesley or Dover for Quiet, and then figure sadly there are probably children there, too .... and bitterly drag myself to the typewriter and hammer out some more. I'm glad Asey is fun to read; he's written with great anguish" Folded once horizontally for mailing, light residue at the verso where the letter appears possibly to have been mounted at one point, else a near fine, bright copy.
