A unique item. Offered is an original letter dated December 24, 1927, written in fountain pen and signed by J. A. Walker, the agent for the Del Ardo Magic Act out of Jersey City, New Jersey. A one-page letter measuring 7-1/4" by 10-1/2" with large, charming printed illustration of an on-stage magician pulling a rabbit out of his hat with his female assistant watching in disbelief, "Del Ardo Comedy Magic A Laugh a Minute" printed in large bold letters to mid-illustration, "1927" and "JAMES ELLIS" (most likely the magician) printed in small letters below the illustration, "THE ACT WITH A 1000 LAUGHS" and "NO. 1058" printed to the right side of the illustration, and printed below "Personal Direction J.A. Walker - 354 York St., Jersey City, N.J. Enroute." Addressed to the Southern Magic Company (no address indicated) from a very angry Mr. Walker, the letter reads (several words are emphatically underlined): "Dec 24 27 - Southern Magic Co - I am surprised at your way of doing business. You sent me a letter which I still hold saying you can offer me a die box improved method just received from a magician? in fine condition 6.75 it's a bargain. And then you send me a piece of junk that looks like it was made by some kid - the covers are warped and you have to raise both covers and the improved method as you call it does not work at all - this box is no good to me. and I am holding your letter that I order this box from until I hear from you trusting you are in business to treat a customer square. Let me hear from you now. Walker." Condition: lacks original mailing envelope; previously folded twice for mailing purposes. Bookseller Inventory # 004608
