    A Margaret Mitchell-Owned Book and Letter from Her Husband, 1950. The book titled "The Old Soak," by Don Marquis, hardcover, with dust jacket (though it is now in two pieces), published by Doubleday, Page & Company, New York, 1925, signed in pencil on the inside cover "Peggy Mitchell / 17 Crescent Ave;" included with a letter from her husband [John Marsh], one page, personalized stationery, typed, dated "November 8, 1950," addressed to "Lois," reading in part "I / gave (this book) to Peggy.../ I hope you will like The Old Soak, not / just to put in your special bookcase but to get out/ and read" -- evidently a memento to an old friend after his wife's untimely death.
    Book: 8" x 5"; Letter: 11" x 7 1/2"
