ALS with remnants of envelope, dated Mch 11th, 1920, addressed to J.D. Baker, Pasadena. Two pp. 8.5x11”. “Dear ‘D’. I address you as ‘D’ since you were so kind as to ask me to do so, and also because I want to do so. I have that beautiful cigarette can ….. you know you wrote] Jack [Frost’s son] that you had spent that fifty cents and you were going to save up to replace it. Knowing that ‘saving up’ in these times is close to the impossible I made up my mind that all that money was gone…..Now my dear boy, lay your hand on your heart, wear a beatific look and try hard to tell me the truth about that cigarette can. WHAT DID YOU PAY FOR IT? I know I look rather like a tamed hayseed at times but honest, I aint [sic] as green as I look…..Fifty cents! ….you left a gap that has not been filled, …..bright peiple [sic] are not in the majority here…..I wish you were coming back……..Jack is out on the desert painting a picture. I know he would send his love to you……We have a horned toad that Jack caught. I can make a more responsible pet out of paper. but we are very fond of it: dear little thing! I wish I knew what he is thinking about. I’ve seen men at my club sit and look just the same way, probably thinking just as deep thoughts. Very sincerely, yours A.B.Frost. CONDITION: FINE
