Miami, FL, USA
Description: Unusual Zane Grey letter from 1904 and is address to Lina E. Roth, his wife's name before they were married. It is a six page handwritten letter starting with some flower drawings and then many interesting passages showing a wide range of emotion, such as "Well, well, I never thought you were downright cruel until that last letter", "I have always known that selfishness and jealous (however confined to me alone) were your great faults", "I'm afraid Dolly I grow less conceited the longer I know you...but I'm gradually becoming humble. I suppose you will ruin me, and then get sore I was so easily moulded". He goes on to tell her he has learned a lot in his stay in Columbus, Ohio of some of his relatives and will share it with her when he sees her. The last page or so is very philosophical and romantic, signed "Pearl. Accompanied with its original envelope and in Very Good condition with usual folds.4" x 6"
