Description: SALINGER, J.D. Autograph Letter Signed, "Jerry," to Mrs. Howard Clow ("Dear Olga"), offering consolation upon the death of her husband. 2 pages, 8vo, "Writers' Manor Hotel" stationery, written on two sheets; minor scattered smudging to text, horizontal folds. With the original envelope, addressed in holograph and additionally Signed, "Salinger." Denver, 18 November 1972

Notes: "I never once heard Howard speak of you without deep love and humor and respect in his voice, and I guess you must know and feel sure that he loved the life you lived together and wouldn't have exchanged it for any other. How many wives, widows, can feel even half so sure their husbands loved their lot in life? Please take great comfort from that, if you can. It's your due.
"I learned so much from Howard, and valued his friendship more than I can say. I never knew a kinder or better or wiser man. . . ."
