Autograph Letter Fragment signed: "Edw. E. Hale", 5x2¼. No place, no date. Text present reads in full: "go? I do not mean my daughter Ellen, but Mrs. Arthur Hale. Truly yours". Edward Everett Hale (1822-1909) was Pastor of the South Congregational Church in Boston (1856-1901) and Chaplain of the U.S. Senate from 1903 to his death. As a Unitarian minister, he championed "breaking forever the fetters of Calvinist theology." Hale a prolific author of both history and popular fiction, especially short stories, is best remembered today for his patriotic tale, "The Man Without a Country" (1863). The skillfully rendered detail of this story, intended to bolster support for the Union during the Civil War, led many to believe it was a true story. Fold in center. Toned. Corners lightly worn.
