J.D. Salinger Note To Maid On Auction

A seller on eBay has listed a rare JD Salinger note to his maid for US$50,000. JD Salinger, the author famous for his book The Catcher in the Rye (1951). those of us who enjoyed his books and have looked forward to reading more of his work know that J.D. Salinger was very guarded about his life and although he never stopped writing, he did not publish many books.

So a handwritten note, even though it is to his maid, is exceedingly rare. Moreover, it was written on his monogrammed stationery and signed with his name. Do you think any collector would pay US$50,000 for a JD Salinger's autograph or is the asking price too high for a "piece of paper"?
