Autograph Letter Signed: "Geo: S Boutwell", 1p, 8x10. Washington D.C., December 7, 1894. To Henry S. Allen, Esq., New York. In part: "From your letter of November 24, and this titles proposes for the volume which has been the subject of our correspondence. I feel quite well advised of your plan. So to the specific title that may remain in abeyance with the work is so far under way that its character can be better comprehended. Time, should and working might aide in deciding upon a title. You're still very much occupied in preparing for an important argument in the Supreme Court and in reasoning proof of a work on the Constitution. Hence I am not in a conviction to make any promises nor shall I be until I am free of duties. Moreover you do not make any reply to my suggestion as to terms. Very truly" George Sewel Boutwell (1818-1905) was elected as a Democrat to two 1-year terms as Governor of Massachusetts (1851-1853).
