MARGARET MITCHELL Handwritten letter from Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and author of Gone With the Wind , to Edwin Granberry (and wife), who wrote one of the first good reviews of her book. She discusses how sorry she is for not writing them sooner describing herself as " oafish of oafs ", explaining how busy she has become and will send a lengthier letter when the time is allowed Autograph Letter Signed: M.

No place, 1936 July 27. To "Mabel and Edwin" [Granberry, an early reviewer of Gone With the Wind]. In full: You two have every right to think me the most oafish of oafs for not having written you sooner to thank you for sanctuary, good food and best of all, marvelous company. Each morning I've risen, bent on writing to you and, as Hell began to pop before I even got my coffee down, I'd think'No, I'll wait till I get time for a long letter.

And the time hasn't come. I don't know when it will come as John and my brother Steve, after a five hour conference about this so-and-so contract, sprung on me tonight a plan to go to N.

Tomorrow and settle the thing in person. I have no clothes, no hats, not a change of underwear or an extra pair of stockings, but it seems that I'm going to N.

I hope to go up with Steve and get the matter over with in two days. I hope I see H. Brickell and meet his wife. Every thing is in a worse stew here than before I went to Blowing Rock and I've hardly had a word with John except about contracts etc.

So we haven't talked much about this winter's trip to Winter Park - Except that he said longingly that it sounded like Heaven and he hoped it could - and would - come true. He also asks me to thank you for your letter, Edwin.

He's been trying to answer it ever since it came for he is so sincerely grateful to you all for all the good things you did for us. As for me, I can never thank you enough.

I look back on last week and remember how I laughed at every thing and nothing and it seems like Heaven. This is a poor excuse of a letter. I'm tongue tied without a typewriter and it is so late I do not dare use it as my machine sounds like a McCormick Harvester.

When I get back from N. I'll write at greater length. Edwin, I'm sending you a jacket for your book. Bless you for wanting it. If you think the lady who asked me about being stuck up was screwy you should have heard the one today, who, under pretence of a question about modern fiction, wanted to know what kind of uplift brassiere I wore!

And when I said I said falteringly that I didn't wear none a-tall ---! I think I'll hire you and Mabel and Herschel as body guards against busy bodies.

At first uncertain about her book's literary merit, she had submitted her manuscript to Macmillan Company in 1935. EDWIN GRANBERRY, a freelance book reviewer and critic, had reviewed her book in a glowing and unprecedented 1,200-word piece in the New York "Evening Sun" on June 30, 1936, the day of the book's publication. Mitchell had been so impressed by the report, which compared her book to Tolstoy's War and Peace, that she had written to thank him. Her letter started a lifelong correspondence -- and a friendship between the two couples: Margaret and her husband, JOHN MARSH, and Edwin (a Southerner himself) and his wife, MABEL. Margaret and John first met the Granberrys at Blowing Rock, North Carolina, the summer campus of Florida's Rollins College, where Granberry was a Professor of English.

Selznick (against Granberry's advice). Mitchell would meet HERSCHEL BRICKELL, a literary critic from Ridgefield, Connecticut, and his wife, NORMA, at a writers' retreat at Blowing Rock in August 1936. Brickell had also written a publication day review of Gone With the Wind in the "New York Post", calling the book a striking piece of literature. Mitchell had written to him at the same time she had written to Granberry, and, as with Granberry, continued her correspondence with him.

Besides their visits to Blowing Rock, the Marshes often vacationed with the Granberrys at their home in Winter Park, Florida. An extraordinarily personal letter with fine literary associations!
