    Jean Harlow Letter Handwritten by Mama Jean. A reply letter to a fan, this missive was actually penned by Harlow's mother. Handwritten in black ink on Hotel Sherman stationery (in Harlow's hometown of Chicago) and postmarked May 24, 1931, it reads in part: "Of course you shall have an autographed photograph - I have only a minute before leaving for the theatre - but want to tell you that as soon as I return to the coast I shall mail you a photograph at once - I have a few with me but I do not care much for them." An unusual and uncommon item, the letter is in Excellent condition with two horizontal fold creases and light discoloration, and the envelope is in Very Good condition with moderate tanning and wear, and some light soiling.
