F. Scott Fitzgerald


c.14 May 1923
Great Neck, L.I.

Dear Mr. X:

Thanks ever so much for the copy of "Flaming Youth." I had of course been reading it as it appeared in the Metropolitan and enjoying it immensely. It will be a great pleasure to start from the beginning and read it thru as I had missed several installments.

Who in the devil are you? Do you know at least a dozen people have asked me if I wrote it. I wish I had but I'm sure I didn't--so who did. Tell me immediately and oblige

Yours Admiringly + Gratefully

F Scott Fitzgerald

I love F. Scott. The Great Gatsby is one of my favorites.

Mr. Fitzgerald was trying to find the identity of Fabian, Hopkin's pen name at the time. Hadn't seen this letter. Thanks for posting it!

Not a fan of the Great Gatsby, but Mr Fitzgerald is certainly one cool dude.
