This is a typed letter copy of an original letter. The original was offered for sale by Max Rambod Inc. in 2003 (lot 937), along with letter #11284. The seller describes the original as "a short ALS by [JW's] wife, Beatrice... Mailing folds, light soiling. Good content". The original appears to have been written on the same sheet(s) as #11284.
