J.D. Salinger letter for sale on eBay for $50,000
The author of "The Catcher in the Rye" and "Franny and Zooey" writes to his maid, "Dear Mary -- Please make sure all the errands are done before you go on vacation, as I do not want to be bothered with insignificant things. Thank you. J.D. Salinger".
The listing says the note has been authenticated.
Salinger, who was a recluse in New Hampshire until he passed away in 2010 at the age of 91, was very protective of his personal life, even going so far as to file a suit to block a publication of a biography about him based on his personal letters.
We're a big fan of "Catcher in the Rye," but we aren't sure if we had $50,000 lying around we'd spend it on a note J.D. Salinger wrote to his maid. What do you think, readers?
