SARAH CLEGHORN. Autograph Letter signed: "Sarah N. Cleghorn", 1p, 5x6½. Brookwood, Katonah, New York, March 14, n.y. To "Mr. Henry W. Winslow", in full: "Thank you very much for the compliment, and I shall be very much flattered and pleased to inscribe the book [not included] as you suggest. If it's sent here I will try to return it without delay. With acknowledgements of your interest in my verses I am Cordially Yours". The poems and short stories of Sarah Norcliffe Cleghorn (1876-1959) were appearing regularly in American popular magazines before the turn of the century. Her appearances diminished about the time of World War I, however, because of her socialist and pacifist views. Her books of poetry included A Turnpike Lady (1907), Portraits and Protests (1917) and Poems of Peace and Freedom (1945). She was also an early advocate of women's suffrage and civil rights, and an opponent of capital punishment. She also wrote an autobiography (1936). She taught at several schools dedicated to nontraditional approaches, including the Brookwood School in Katonah, N.Y., established to educate the children of workers. Mounting paper remnant shows through along right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
