Very good condition. No place or date. 3pp, 8vo, An amusing letter to the editors of "The Outlook", evidently intended for publication in that periodical, concerning an error in their previous issue, in part: ". . . I find the names of some of the graduates who have 'passed from earth,' and I am interested to find myself in that company with John Hancock and Samuel Adams. . . . I feel . . . a certain satisfaction as being ranked as an intimate with Sam. Adams, and . . . we may hope that some of the Spiritual papers, -- may rap back to earth a triangular 'interview' between him and me and President Eliot, who is another of those who have 'passed from earth.' The process is so easy, that until I read my Outlook, I had not known that I had passed, except in dreams. In my sleep I often find myself skimming along, a very little above the earth. . . . Until now, however, I have never met John Hancock and Samuel Adams in these passages. As for President Eliot, when he passes from earth, it is apt to be as his yacht leaves dry land. . . . But both he and I are apt to come back again. I think he will be glad to have you say that his address is still Cambridge, as I will thank you to say that mine is still 39 Highland St. Roxbury, Mass 'not to be forwarded'." Folds; lightly toned and soiled. Fastened with a brass fastener to a 12mo sheet (edges chipped; folds; some toning) on which is typed: "It is not often that we take pleasure in admitting that we have committed an editorial blunder, but on the whole we think our readers will derive so much entertainment from Mr. Hale's protest that they will forgive our carelessness. And we have sincere joy in testifying that Mr. Hale is not only alive but one of the livest men we ever knew. The Editors." [10740, Hyraxia Books].
