Fields, W.C. - One Page Unsigned Handwritten Letter To His Mistress - Beckett & R&R LOA's
One page of an unsigned, handwritten letter written by W.C. Fields', to his long-time mistress actress Carlotta Monti, whom he always addressed as "Carlotta Douglas" in his letters.
The two had a relationship during the last 14 years of Field's life. It's a peek into their relationship, as Fields attempts to get Douglas to tone down her personality to be taken more seriously by people she meets.
The letter reads "I have explained to you several times that your nervous jumping around not only makes others nervous, but gives them ideas about the way you conduct yourself generally...THINK. Do not act so impetuously. Think before instead of afterwards." He also mentions a gift he sent her with "C. Douglas" engraved on it, perhaps jewelry.
Includes a photo of Fields. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Beckett Authentic and a LOA from R&R Auctions. The letter measures 8 1/2 x 11 inches and presents with moderate to heavy wear and toning. Excellent condition.
