My dear Percy Stickney Grant:
We are all watching with keen interest the swirl of events connected with free speech, and the swirl has especial interest for we since you are involved in it. I am aware of your brave and honorable words; and I wish to say that I cordially support the stand that you have taken in defense of the right of free expression of opinion in our country. I trust that you will have the support of all courageous spirits, of all men and women who stand for the true Americanism. Let me say also that your courageous stand has strengthened the hearts of all of us. Grace and strength attend you. You have gained the blessing of the One who Watches.
(Hand written at bottom):
Yours in the affectionate fellowship of the great hopes!
Edwin Markham
