Typescript, with handwritten notes by Cather, proposing corrections to the dust jacket blurb for Sapphira and the Slave Girl.

1940. One page, typed in blue ink, with pencil and ink revisions. The page was a draft submitted to Cather for review. She made modest changes to the outside portions, circled the middle portion and made a couple of corrections. On a second page typed by Cather herself, she proposes new language for the central portion of the jacket, then notes in pencil "I suggest the above paragraph take the place of the paragraph in your copy which I have enclosed in pencil. Hastily W.S.C." The typing on this page is so faded as to be almost invisible, but a close scan reveals that the language she proposes is what appears on the final jacket. Item #32299
