OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES. Autograph Letter signed: "Oliver Wendell Holmes", 1p, 4½x7. Boston, Massachusetts, 1892 October 14. To "George Kamholtz, Secretary of the O W Holmes Chapter of Harper's Young People Knights and Ladies of the Round Table." In full: "I feel highly complimented by the Association you represent in its adopting my name as its special designation. I hope that it may prove a good omen for your future, and that the organization may long outlive the octogenarian for whom it is named. With all kind wishes, Your sincere friend". Physician and author Holmes (1809-1894) is best known for his poems "Old Ironsides" (1830) and "The Wonderful One-Hoss Shay" (1858), and for his urbane Breakfast-Table sketches, the latter first appearing in 1857 in the "Atlantic Monthly" (which he had named). He was the first Dean of Harvard Medical School. His son and namesake was a distinguished Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Pin holes and ¼-inch nick at top center. Mounting tape remnants at top and bottom center. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
