* MAC ARTHUR, Douglas (1880-1964). Autograph letter signed ("D Mac A"), to Dan Poling. N.p., n.d. (ca 25 September 1963).
1 page, 4to, penned beneath a TLS from Poling, on Christian Herald stationery, lightly creased, staple holes in upper left corner, a few tiny stains, light pencil erasure upper right. MacArthur responds to an inquiry about the publication of his memoirs. Dan Poling, Chairman and Editor of "Christian Herald Magazine" writes: "An unnumbered multiple of people are happy with the announcement of your memoirs. We have all been waiting for them. I, of course, wish to do a review in Christian Herald magazine for our associated channels. May I have an early review copy?" MacArthur responds below Poling's letter: "The book will be published next year by McGraw, Hill Co. I will see tha tyou get an advance copy." MacArthur never lived to see his memoirs in print; he died just over 6 months later at the age of 84. Prior to the publication of his book, the Five-Star General signed 1,750 blank sheets to be inserted into a limited edition of his autobiography.
