Pair of letters from the American dancer and actor to Sammy Berk, a former vaudeville entertainer who managed Cab Calloway, Jonah Jones, and Duke Ellington.  The first letter (autograph letter signed; "Saturday," otherwise undated; 1 p. on personal stationary) reads in full "Dear Sam, / Thanks for your letter.  I was very glad to hear from you. / Give my best to the great Jonah and to the boys – please.  I miss him a lot. / It was sure a great time we all had.  My!  My!  Didn't that show kill 'em!!!!?!  Don't know when I'll be able to get at another one but when I do – I sure hope to get Jonah! / All best Sam / -Fred."  The letter almost certainly refers to An Evening with Fred Astaire, the 1958 NBC television special that featured the Jonah Jones Quartet, revived Astaire's career, and won a staggering nine Emmy awards.  Vertical and horizontal mailing crease, overall in very good condition.  5.5 x 7 inches (14 x 17.8 cm.).
