WHARTON, EDITH. 1862-1937.
Autograph Letter Signed ("Edith Wharton"), 2 pp recto and verso, 4to, St. Brice-sous-Forêt, November 1, 1932, to Miss Robins, on personal stationery, fine.

Wharton reflects on the recent growth in crime. In part: "I did not at first realize that was your brother who had vanished in such tragic circumstances, & I want to tell you how deeply I feel for you in your grief and anxiety ... It is hard to believe that our unhappy land has become a lawless wilderness full of evil mysteries where in my youth all was so innocent and kindly."
