Dear Mr. Markham,
I have your last letter in regard to our good friend Nelson, of St. Louis. I did not see him, however, this last time (tho I hear that he has been East again), so forwarded your letter to him at his St. Louis address.
I was up at Oscawana last Sunday, and was delighted by all that I saw there. The long account of the community in the “News” was interesting, I thought, and I sent it along to you. Several spoke to me of your visit while I was there. And Joseph Adelman and his beautiful wife (how winsome a couple!) told me that you were the last guest they had entertained in their tent before I came along. They served me an Arcadian repast under the trees, and we wandered up over the hills to watch the sunset. It is indeed a glorious spot, and my visit was made under ideal conditions.
With very cordial greeting from
Leonard Abbott
That was a fine poem of yours in “The Independent” the other day.
