    Mary Pickford TLS Regarding Deaths of Mothers signed "Mary," one page, 6.5" x 9.5" personal letterhead, dated November 2, 1960 to Clifton Webb on the death of his mother. This touching letter reads, in part: "...We both know only too well the pain of parting and the void that is left when someone we love has left us, as Buddy lost his darling mother the same week as you lost yours... Buddy, like you, always was a wonderful son and this knowledge should be a source of comfort to you both. Both Buddy's mother and yours were singularly fortunate in sharing the interesting and full lives of their sons..." Of course, the "Buddy" referred to is Charles "Buddy" Rogers, Pickford's husband. Excellent condition, original mailing folds, envelope included. With COA from PSA/DNA.
