Handwritten, signed letter from the American poet saying she has received a recent check that was "satisfactory", and wishes the recipient and their girls well in the exhausting weather
Autograph letter signed: "Lucy Larcom", in blue ink, 5x4¼. In full: "The check came - a satisfactory one. Will you kindly direct and seal the enclosed after reading. I do not know where to find [illegible]. I hope you are comfortable through this exhausting weather. Love to the girls. Sincerely yours". Because the death of her father left the family in dire straits, Lucy Larcom (1824-1893) worked in the cotton mills of Lowell, Massachusetts from ages 11 to 21. While working long hours in the mill, Larcom wrote poems about her experiences. She gained a national reputation, with poems published in the leading American magazines. She also edited one journal, Our Young Folks (1866-1873). Her autobiographical story A New England Girlhood (1883) remains in print. Multiple folds. Lightly toned. Light surface creases. Corners and edges slightly worn. Irregular edges, with paper fragments on bottom ad left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
