JOHN GREENLEAF WHITTIER
Whittier wrote and signed this letter in 1881, telling a doctor that he'll be happy to meet him and his daughters.
Autograph letter signed "John G. Whittier". 1 page, 4½x7. Written at "Hotel Winthrop", Nov. 22, 1881. In full: "Dr. Freud I shall be happy to see thee & thy young ladies tomorrow at 8. p.m. There will not be much worth seeing on their part. The advantage will all be on mine. Thy friend". A staunch abolitionist, Quaker poet Whittier (1807-1892, born in Haverhill, Massachusetts) also wrote pastoral poems, including his masterpiece Snow-Bound (1866), that reflected rugged New England life. Probably best remembered today for his patriotic poem Barbara Frietchie, he was once honored with holidays in some New England states. Whittier moved to Amesbury, Massachusetts in 1836. Lightly toned and soiled. Mounting remnants on verso, which lightly show-through and ripple letter; show-through touches handwriting and signature. Page was neatly torn from pad or notebook at right edge. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
