Notes

A very warm and chatty letter from the then current writer of the Oz stories, Ruth Plumly Thompson, who was the next writer of the series after L. Frank Baum. The letter discusses all things current in Oz, including the new titles. Thompson shares her thoughts on the plays and films: "The Wizard of Oz is being made into a musical and while I suppose they'll spoil and change everything - it may turn out better then we think. After that the Oz books will probably be used in animated cartoons - and that WILL be fun. I'm sorry Walt Disney could not get Mrs. Baum to let him have her husband's books as he was interested in doing the whole set. But as she has sold her (i.e. L.F.B's. Mr. B has been dead as you know for quite awhile) books to another studio - mine will probably have to be sold to the same people." Thompson also talks about a role she played in a play as Ozma making her a "Princess of Oz."
