Letter, 22 November 1930, from Erskine Caldwell to Leonardo Andrea
Letter, 22 November 1930, from Erskine Caldwell (1903-1987), Hollywood, Ca., to Leonardo Andrea, Superintendent of Schools, Edgefield, thanks the latter for having written concerning Caldwell's 1929 novel The Bastard.

"Your letter came to me out of the bright blue sky," Caldwell wrote, and "gives me a little more confidence in myself." "Recently I published a short novel called Poor Fool, but my most important book (I hope) is coming early next Spring. It is a collection of short stories called American Earth, and the publisher is Charles Scribner's Sons." In closing, Caldwell writes - - "I shall be back in the native land by Christmas, and I hope I may have the pleasure of seeing someone who really understands my work."
