    A Jean Harlow / "Mama Jean" Large Collection of Correspondence, 1932-1936. Fifty-four letters, all sent to a "Mrs. E.G. Hutton" in Covington, Virginia from 1932 to 1936, each typed on the star's personalized letterhead, filled with newsy content of Harlow's life such as films she was making, trips she took, golf, charity work, the weather, her garden, etc., most signed in black fountain pen ink "Jean Harlow" though it's in Mama Jean's hand; it's also clear that Mama wrote all the content and though these letters are not from Jean Harlow herself, they still serve to document the star's activities on a monthly basis (albeit from her mother's perspective); overall, somewhat banal but Mama did add a few interesting tidbits to make these letters worthwhile for the Jean Harlow "completist;" all included with their original transmittal envelopes.
