Autographed letter signed, three pages - folded double-page, 5,25 x 8,25 inch, in French, reply letter to a lady - inter alia concerning his `vagabond mind as poet` (translated), written and signed in black ink "F. T. Marinetti", with very mild stains and intersecting letter folds - in nearly very fine condition. In parts: "Madame, Excusez, je vous prie, mon silence tout involontaire. Je suis en train de (?) d`un ocean d`affaires compliquees et trop serieuses pour ma vagabonde cervelle de poete. Je tiens la barre du gouvernail tout bien que mal, ce qui m`empeche, pour quelques jours encore, de venir a Paris. J`ai appris ce matin, par le Mercure et par votre lettre, l`eclatant hommage d`admiration et de sympathie que vient de recevoir notre grand Gustave. Quelle joie!..."
