Typed Letter, signed ("Jim"), to Liz Riley of the Thomas Crowell Company, thanking her for the new Dictionary of Slang.

New York, Algonquin Hotel, 59 West 44th Street: 1960.

1 p. 1 vols. 8-1/2 x 11. “The only slang phrase I ever invented …”. A few minor smudges from the original typewriter, original folds, a few pinholes upper left, but very nice overall. Item #42863

A marvelous note from the Master:

“I am glad indeed to have the new Dictionary of Slang and thanks for sending it along. Maybe it contains — it's up in Cornwall waiting for us — the origin of the only slang phrase I ever invented: I have to see a man about a dog”.
