1 [Stoddard, Charles Warren] Wm. R. William Rounseville Alger. Autograph Letter, Signed, to Charles Warren Stoddard.

Dateline Winston House, Mt. Kearsarge, N.H., (no date), where Alger is on vacation. Responding to Stoddard's letter asking Alger to help him get some lecturing dates on the New England lecture circuit. "I have no doubt such a lecture as you describe would be interesting and instructive, yet we have here in the Middle and Eastern states so many lectures, such a multitude of popular public entertainments of all sorts...but if you have the pluck and passion to try it, why then all I can say is God speed you and grant you a success which I cannot soberly anticipate for you." He finishes with his wish to someday visit "the Golden Coast" (California) if he lives long enough, and will count it a great pleasure to visit Stoddard there. Alger (1822-1905) was a Harvard trained Unitarian clergyman, a writer, and "...a favorite on the lyceum platform, and much in demand as a speaker for special occasions." (DAB). His cousin was Horatio Alger. Two conjugate leaves, three pages, paper a little toned, mounting stains on the 4th page, a blank. Very Good condition.

To "Prof. J. (Jens) Christian Bay". Dated Washington, D.C., 19 June '02.

He list ten titles beginning with Poems and ends with In the Footprints of the Padres. He appreciates Bay's "two delightful letters", hopes they can develop a friendship, and asks for a signed photograph as a keepsake.
