MARGARET DELAND
Signed Autograph Note on a 4x5 sheet
Autograph Note signed: "We were so/sorry not to/see you this/morning -/Sincerely/Margaret Deland/Saturday/112 Mt. Vernon Square", 3¾x6. American novelist, short story writer and poet Margaret Deland (1857-1945), born Margaretta Wade Campbell, was best known for her 1888 novel, John Ward, Preacher, and for her "Old Chester" books, which were based on her early memories of Maple Grove and Manchester, Pennsylvania (her uncle, who lived in Manchester, was the model for the fictional "Old Chester"). Her first book, The Old Garden and Other Verses (1886), was her only volume of poetry (her first poem had been published in "Harper's" magazine); Deland also published a two-volume autobiography. In addition to her literary endeavors, Deland also became involved with the plight of unwed mothers; she and her husband Lorin Deland took in some 60 women and infants in the space of four years. The best known Mount Vernon Square is in Washington, D.C, the site of the city's original public library. Horizontal fold crease affecting "g" of signature. Corners worn and notched. Lightly soiled and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
