WILLIAM HIRAM RADCLIFFE
The electrical engineer and author of Home Study Course in Practical Electricty sends affectionate letter to his intended, signs name in black ink
Autograph letter signed: "Will" in black ink. 15 pages integral leaf, 4½x7 folded, 7x9 flat. November 8, 1896. In part: "My darling sister:- As per agreement this afternoon is yours, what a pleasant task I have for as disagreeable an afternoon; the rain, although not coming just fast enough to dampen one's enthusiasm to wander out. I have just finished my after-dinner smoke, the Sunday paper, and several comic papers so will devote the remainder of the day to you, my sweet little Peach. I cannot thank you enough for agreeing so readily to that scheme of letter-writing I proposed in my last and for commencing it with such a dear, loving letter. I received it sooner than I expected to - got it Monday evening and you did not mail it till in the afternoon - did you? Think, therefore, I may expect them Monday evening instead of Tuesday morning, as I told you before. Of course, I do not always go up in the evening especially if the weather is disagreeable, but it has been so charming for a week past that I have been out most every night. Usually find somebody or something to while away an evening with; but my dear, how often I wish you were here. What fine times we could have, walking driving, loving each other - but sweetness - it is only a question of time, is it not?" William H. Radcliffe (b. 1873) graduated from Harvard University in May 1896, and worked as an electrical engineer and professor. Radcliffe wrote Telephone Instruments, Their Operation, Arrangement and Management in 1913 and Home Study Course in Practical Electricity in 1916. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Light surface creases. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
