Six Letters to Elizabeth T. Price (Betty Price), 1931-1937, from friend D.L.B. about travel and golfing on hotel stationery

1931. Six letters, each with envelope, written to Elizabeth T. Price (Betty) from 1931 to 1937 by friend or relative who only signed "D.L.B." #1: 3 April 1931; written on stationery from the George Washington hotel, Winchester, Va.; D.L.B. describes golfing and seeing historical sites on vacation; addressed to Price at 710 Radclifffe St., Bristol, Pa. (known as the Lenox-Keene House), where she is visiting. #2: 14 Sept. 1931; written on stationery from Pocono Manor, Pa.; D.L.B. describes golfing (the Pocono Manor course was designed by Donald Ross) and seeing Brandon DeCou's Dream Pictures of a tour through England and Scotland. #3: 21 Aug. 1935; written on Pocono Manor Inn stationery; D.L.B. describes golfing with Chester Reagan (headmaster of Moorestown Friends School 1925-1955). Pocono Manor was established and frequented by Philadelphia Quakers, suggesting that D.L.B. and perhaps Price were Friends. D.L.B. references occasions on which Price had also been there. #4: 22 Dec. 1935; written on stationery of Hotel Dupont, Wilmington, Del.; D.L.B. describes travel plans. #5: 2 Sept. 1936; written on Princeton stationery; D.L.B. describes watching the Walker Cup at Pine Valley in the company of Albert Linton (1887-1966), a Moorestown Friends School graduate, and then making it to Princeton in time to golf. #6: 23 Aug. 1937; written on stationery of The Lord Jeffery, a Treadway Inn, Amherst, Mass.; D.L.B. mentions seeing Professor "Wicher (of Amherst)" at Bread Loaf (George Frisbie Whicher (1889-1954) professor of English at Amherst from 1915 to 1954); written to Price at the Gifford House, Provincetown, Mass. The other four letters were addressed to her in Norristown, Pa. George Frisbie Whicher was involved in the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference in Vermont in August 1937. This suggests that D.L.B. attended the conference in some capacity. In Fine Condition: clean and crisp. Fine. Item #008340
