Forged letter for sale
There is a letter by Louise Brooks for sale on eBay. This 1966 letter references the actress dealings with journalists and editors, and her departure from the Catholic Church. Curiously, the seller - a known dealer - admits that the letter is signed "in a forged hand." And that the entire letter is a "clever forgery." Yet still they want good money for it. Curious and curiouser.
