Dear Mr. Markham,
Your letter, with its enclosures, was an inspiration. These poems were among the very first of yours that I read (how long ago!) and they are very dear to me. Mr. Land’s copies, with your inscription and autographs, I have already passed on to him. He was deeply appreciative of your gift and expects to write you himself. The Bronx Free Fellowship, of which he is the leader, was in part organized in my home and has lately celebrated its fifth anniversary.
Rose’s death is a tragedy for her family, but for her, as you say, it was a release. Our marriage was a happy one in spite of her terrible affliction.
Affectionately Yours,
Leonard D. Abbott.
