My Dear Professor Markham:
Your good letter came in my absence. Permit me to thank you most warmly for your kind and generous expressions. The poem grew greater as the days go by, and continues to add fresh luster to your fame. Rarely does it fall to the lot of man to arouse and electrify the world with a single stroke of his genius – and so I renew (?) my congratulations and with them I beg you to receive my admiration and my love. Truly, the day of human brotherhood is dawning, Until I am permitted to meet and thank you in person believe me yours faithfully,
Eugene V. Debs
