JOHN GREENLEAF WHITTIER
American abolitionist and poet John Greenleaf Whittier wrote and signed this letter to apologize for missing the recipient's daughter.
Autograph letter signed "John G. Whittier" in purple ink. In full: "Dear Mr. [illegible] I am very glad to comply with [illegible] daughter's request. I am sorry I missed her call with thee. Truly 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. Adhesive residue on verso with very light show-through (does not touch signature). Paper clip impression at top edge. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
