FAULKNER, WILLIAM. - Original handwritten letter to Ben Wasson.

Ink on paper. Single leaf, folded three times. 27,5 x 21 cm. Recto only. 20 lines to 'Dear Ben', signed 'Bill'. Not dated. Very interesting letter to Faulkners literary agent and friend Ben Wasson, concerning the death of his dog and the whereabouts of the manuscripts of 'Snopes' and some short stories. 'Snopes' referres to the family name of the characters from The Hamlet (1940), The Town (1957) and The Mansion (1959). Faulkner asks Wasson urgently to try to get in touch with 'Crump' (Owen Crump, the artist who shared his apartment with Faulkner in late 1928) who apparently still has the manuscripts in his possesion. The whereabouts of Owen Crump are unknown to Faulkner: 'I don't know where Crump is. He married a Brooklyn girl (...)'. Faulkner is afraid to lose the manuscripts because 'that copy is the only 'Snopes' I have'. * **** This letter is NOT in Selected letters of William Faulkner (edited by Joseph Blotner).
