Rodgers, Richard (1902-79) Composer; collaborated with lyricist Lorenz Hart, then Oscar Hammerstein II, to create musicals such as The Lady Is A Tramp (with Hart) and Oklahoma (with Hammerstein). Typed Letter Signed ("R. Rodgers") on personal letterhead, New York, June 29, 1962, 1 pg., small quarto. To novelist Edna Ferber: "The only reason, Ferb dear, that Franz Liszt becomes the collector's item is because he played the piano as well as you do the typewriter. I don't think he ever looked as pretty as you did last night and I know I couldn't have been as happy to see him so this is a note of gratitude and a promise of undying affection." Ferber was 77 years old at the time.
Estimated Value $500 - 600.

Realized $322
