CHARLES A. DANA
Charles A. Dana wrote this letter on New York Sun stationery in 1884, while he was editor and owner of that paper, to explain a change in schedule for a trip.
Autograph letter signed "C.A. Dana". 2 pages, 5x8, 1 sheet folded, front and verso, on New York Sun stationery. Oct. 9. 1884. In full: "My dear Mr McVaugh: I am delighted at your telegram which I have just received, but my joy is clouded by a disappointment. The [illegible], on the [illegible] railroad have been changed since I wrote to you before, and instead of being able to [illegible] city at 4 o'clock & get leave by day-light, we shall have to [illegible] half past 4, and arrive in the dark of the evening. It is a great pity, but can't be helped. I know your timidity about driving in the dark even with the most skillful & prudent character; and in this instance you may brace yourself with the [illegible] that you are not obliged to drive yourself. Yours faithfully". Dana (1819-1897), born Charles Anderson Dana, was the city and later managing editor of Horace Greeley's New York Tribune (1847-1862) and served as President Abraham Lincoln's Assistant Secretary of War (1863-1865). From 1868 until his death in 1897, Dana was part-owner and editor of the New York Sun. Lightly toned and foxed. Light nick at bottom edge. Folded once vertically and twice horizontally. Otherwise in fine condition.
