Title: Typed letter, signed
Description: Boston 35 Newbury Street 1904. A typed letter - "Dictated" - on a bifolium, dated and located, 35 Newbury St., Boston, February 3, 1904, the leaf measuring 240 x 194 mms. unfolded, the text on the recto of the first folded leaf, reading, "My dear Mr. Johnson: - If it is permissible, I should like to know how Dr. Lavendar is behaving in England? Any information, favora-ble or otherwise, will gratefully & 'umbly received by the undersigned." The author signs the letter with an ink drawing of herself peering at what seems to be a body of water, possibly notionally looking across the Atlantic to Mr. Johnson. The book of Deland's to which she refers in this letter is almost certainly Dr. Lavendar's People, which was published in both New York and London by Harper & Brothers. The book's copyright page states it was published in October 1903, which would mean this letter was written about four months after the initial publication of the bookWikipedia: Margaret Deland (née Margaretta Wade Campbell) (February 23, 1857 – January 13, 1945) was an American novelist, short story writer, and poet. Deland is known principally for the novel John Ward, Preacher (1888), an indictment of Calvinism, which became a best-seller.
