ROBERT J. BURDETTE
A letter from the humorist quoting Proverbs 17:22, writing "I don't think I can improve on the sentiment"
Autograph letter signed: "Robt. J Burdette", 1 page, 5¼x8. May 24, 1884. Ardmore, Pennsylvania. May 24, 1884. In full: "My dear boy, A wiser man than the President has said "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones." I don't think I can improve on the sentiment Yours". Humorous essayist and lecturer Robert J. Burdette (1844-1914) wrote columns for the Burlington Hawkeye, and later the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, which were reprinted in newspapers across America. His humor extended to poems ("My First Cigar"), and his popular lectures included the topic "The Rise and Fall of the Mustache." In the 1890s, he became a Baptist minister. Normal mailing folds. Left edge frayed and torn. Bottom corners creased. Two cuts in top margin where a card was previously inserted. Light surface creases. Slightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
