Autograph Letter signed: "Tom Meredith", 2 pages (integral leaf), 4½x7. No place, 1921 September 4. On letterhead of the National Club Toronto to Mrs. Scribner. In full: "My visit to your charming country home was a most pleasant event in my 'World Tour' of which I carry home so many memories. I wish I had been able to stay till later in the day & see your garden more thoroughly, but this I trust you will allow me to do on my next visit to New York which will not, I trust, be very long delayed. And I beg that I may be told in good time when you next place a European tour. Believe me yours very sincerely".
