Autographed Letter Signed in French
St. Jean Ferret 1955 - French playwright, artist, and designer. 1 page, 10.75 x 8.25 inches, St. Jean Ferret, September 11, 1955, in French, untranslated, to an unknown correspondent, with interesting literary content, in part: "Cher Monsieur," writing that he had sent an earlier letter and had not received an answer. He suggests that maybe his previous letter did not arrive or that the recipient did not think it worthwhile replying to. However, he stresses that he does not trifle, so to speak, ever. Cocteau speaks of argot and mentions that he does not know the original text of "You Can Always Duck" (1943) by the British mystery writer Peter Cheyney, but thinks the French translation by his correspondent is a masterpiece. He also would like to know the man who wrote pages 15-21 of "Alors toujours en blade?" -- the title of the French translation (1947) of "You Can Always Duck." In closing Cocteau states, "As the young woman of St. Germaine say, 'it's feudal,' and I think so." Natural folds; very good(+) condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
