Two items by the legendary musical duo, the first a T.L.S. of OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN, 1p. 4to., [n.p.], Nov. 6, 1951, on fantastic "South Pacific" letterhead to Basil O'Connor, law partner and advisor to Franklin D. Roosevelt, in part: "...I have written to Gertrude Lawrence and she has said that she will be glad to take over the chairmanship of the Mary MacArthur Fund this year, so all you have to do is get in touch with her and arrange it...". With RICHARD RODGERS, S.P. 8" x 10" b/w, showing the composer in his later years, boldly inscribed and signed at bottom blank margin. Very good condition, with a mounted newspaper image of Rodgers and Hammerstein together on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of their musical "Oklahoma!". Three items in all, very good.
