John Wayne Signed Letter and Telegram

John Wayne Signed Letter and Telegram

The Duke sent these two courtly correspondences to famed sports columnist Jim Murray, one on Wayne's personal stationery and signed "Duke", in the '70s near the end of his illustrious life (he died in '79). Typed note dated Dec. 23, 1976 (6 x 8.25") gently quibbles, "Couldn't you have made that last line a question instead of a command?" and concludes, "Sincerely, John Wayne" with "Duke" underneath in black pen. EX-MT, w/ one light fold. Telegram dated 12/20/77 accepts an invitation to a function, with Wayne saying, "This sounds better than as wedding. I am a lousy dancer." Newport Beach address and phone # are listed. Telegram EX w/2 folds. Includes mailing envelope for the telegram.
