Charles Lee was a Philadelphia critic, journalist, and author, and Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1958 he was a regular host of radio and television programs in Philadelphia featuring literature and the arts.

The TLS (typed letter, signed) is on the stationary of the editor of this book - Mrs. Walter Stokes - the daughter of Owen Wister, and it is 3 pages typed, and signed in ink "Francis | CW-Stokes." In it she outlines her instructions for the upcoming TV interview scheduled for March 26, 1958, the day on which she signed this volume for Lee. She is very explicit in her directions and gives details on her father's view of the cowboy, "the romantic descendant of the Knight of the Round Table."
