Salinger, J.D. Typed Letter Signed, “J.D. Salinger,” to Mrs. Joan Benson. Windsor, Vt., Jan. 22, 1957. One typed sheet, 11 x 8 ½”, addressed to a fan and accompanied by the original mailing envelope bearing the writer’s pre-printed address, plus the recipient’s original carbon of the letter to which Salinger has replied, and a photocopy of Mrs. Benson’s 1999 letter to David Remnick of The New Yorker relating to the story of her rediscovery of the letter within her old files. The famously reclusive author writes, in part: “As for your expressed hopes that my career didn’t end with the Roofbeam story, please be assured that I don’t think it did. I’m just finishing an extremely long, almost novel-length story—to do with the Glass family again—which will probably be published in about a year.” Original folds; fine.
