23-year-old Eudora Welty's job application letter to The New Yorker (she didn't get the job)
From Letters of Note: "In March of 1933, in an attempt to secure some work, 23-year-old Eudora Welty wrote the charming letter above to the offices of The New Yorker. Incredibly, they turned her down."
"She went on to write numerous pieces for The New Yorker and later won multiple awards for her work including, in 1973, the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for her novel, 'The Optimist's Daughter.' Seven years later, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom."

I would have loved to have known her.
