    Description

    Signed Letters from Writers E.M. Forster and Rumer Godden. E.M. Forster, noted British author of Howard's End and Passage to India (and whose literary theme was "Only Connect") writes a June 22, 1944, letter on personal stationery to Jeanne De Casalis, in response to her desire (and Anthony Asquith's) to film Forster's book Howard's End. The double-sided letter, filled with Forster's ideas about the film, is written in black ink and signed in full. Rumer Godden, who was the author of such works as Black Narcissus (she hated the famous film version) and The River, writes on personal stationery an October 10, 1948, thank you to Jeanne for her letter applauding Godden's book A Candle for Saint Jude. The letter is signed in full. Both letters and autographs are in Excellent condition.
