Autograph letter signed: "Hamlin Garland", 1 page, 6x9. The Player's Club, New York City, March 22 circa 1902. In part: "...I wish I could be present in order to voice my congratulation to him on attaining his eightieth birthday. He is one of the noblest men ever known...." American author Edward Hale (1822-1909) turned 80 years old in 1902. Short stories by Hamlin Garland (1860-1940) first appeared in "Harper's Weekly". Many appeared in Main Traveled Roads (1891), followed by collections of his short stories in Prairie Folks (1892) and Wayside Courtships (1897). In his novel Crumbling Idols (1894), Garland put forward the theory of realistic fiction, which he called veritism. Later novels were criticized as being political propaganda. These included: Jason Edwards (1892), A Member of the Third House (1892) and A Spoil of Office (1892). The sequel to A Son of the Middle Border (1917), A Daughter of the Middle Border (1921), continued the autobiographical theme of that book and dealt with Garland's marriage and later career. It was awarded the 1922 Pulitzer Prize in Biography or Autobiography. Creased and toned. Normal mailing folds. Adhesive residue on verso. Light pencil notes (unknown hand) in top margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
