Autograph note signed from Angelica Huston to Paul Kohner

N.p. N.p., Circa 1956. Autograph note signed from a very young Angelica Huston to "Uncle Paul," John Huston's longtime agent Paul Kohner, thanking him for the Christmas gift of a "[pair of] mittens and cap." She goes on to detail gifts she received from her father, mother, and Santa, as well as a gift her brother Tony received.

Although the note is undated (other than "Sunday"), it bears the address of "St. Clerans, Craughwell," in Co. Galway, Ireland where John Huston purchased an estate and moved his family in 1956. In the note, Angelica Huston also mentions she "will wear [the mittens and cap] in Switzerland." Given that she was five when the family moved to Ireland, and that the handwriting is clearly a young child's, we speculate that this is an oblique (and unknowing) reference to her father being attached to direct and ultimately quitting David O. Selznick's 1957 production of "A Farewell to Arms," shot on location in the Alps.

7 x 9 inches. Printed in blue ballpoint on both recto and verso, folded both vertically and horizontally for mailing. Small dampstain to the verso, Near Fine overall.
