In full: "This is the only recent snapshot I have left, but is (sic, it) certainly shows me in a very characteristic pose in a corner of my workshop. Since retirement I have been making model cannon for the Elder Craftsmen Shop in New York, and doing voluntary shop work for a nearby home for the blind. These activities keep me busy, and keep my tools from rusting. I am only seventy-two, and have one very good eye and a quorum of teeth, and my doctor promises me truly that my heart will last as long as I will. What more can I ask? Cordially yours".

An American who was stationed in Paris, he wrote about his service in a 1925 article in "The Nation". Slightly creased with fold (not at signature). Fine condition.
