Includes an Affidavit of Authorship and a Bill of Sale, both related to the Stan Laurel's sale of A Close Shave, "an original motion picture story," both dated November 17, 1926 and both bearing the neat, clean ink signature of Stan Laurel. The affidavit contains Laurel's Los Angeles home address, and the Bill of Sale mentions Hal Roach Studios and Laurel's payment for the story ($10!).
