    Charlie Chaplin Signed Letter. Typed on business letterhead and dated May 30, 1916, it reads in part: "How happy I am to bring a ray of sunshine into the dull gray lifes [sic] of those who need it most and if I can bring but one laugh to the countenances of those less fortunate than ourselves my work and hardest efforts are repaid a thousand fold and all my work is worth while." The letter is signed "Chas. Chaplin" in black fountain pen, and in Very Good to Fine condition with two fold creases, light wear and dark tanning to the edges, a piece missing near the top left corner, and heavy tanning to the back side, none of which affects the magnificent signature. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
