Typed letter signed, two pages, 3,75 x 6,75 inch, San Antonio - Texas, 9.IV.1929, reply letter to Mr. Hammond, very interesting content: "..My chief interest in sculpture today, I believe, above all the other arts is that it is more permanent than any of them, and purely because of the form or the material used to express one`s self...Inexperience and ignorance is undeveloped mind in soul, and this development only comes with age and training in the harness of life. The body is always a wild thing - a savage thing...I think the world at this time is seeing and hearing too much that is neither worth seeing and hearing...", mounted for fine display with a photograph, shows Gutzon Borglum in a bust portrait - the signature on the photograph is a print ! (altogether 11,75 x 8,25 inch), signed in dark fountain pen, puncher holes at the left border - else in very fine condition.
