Autograph letter signed "Edward E Hale.". 1 page, 5x8, on stationery of South Congregational Church in Boston, Massachusetts. Nov. 21, 1883. In full: "Dear Sir: I shall hav [sic] great plea sure [sic] in calling upon his Excellency at 1 p.m. Thursday - Truly yours". We're not sure who "his Excellency" is, but it is an honorific applied to the Governor of Massachusetts. Hale (1822-1909, born in Boston, Massachusetts) was Pastor of the South Congregational Church in Boston (1856-1901) and Chaplain of the U.S. Senate from 1903 to his death. Hale, a prolific author of both history and popular fiction, is best remember today for his patriotic tale Man Without a Country (1863). Fragile. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Show-through from mounting residue on verso (does not touch signature). Light tear at top, left and right edge. Light nicks at top edge. Folded in quarters and unfolded. Horizontal fold is worn.
