1 Howells, W.D. William Dean. Autograph Letter, Signed.

On printed letterhead of the Office of The Atlantic Monthly, No. 124 Tremont Street, Boston, dated August 5, 1873. To "Mr. Deming" (Philander Deming): "I accept with pleasure your very touching and freshly-felt, simply told, 'Pastoral'". Deming has written on p.3: "'Pastoral' was changed to the title "Willie" and published in Atlantic July 1874. P.Deming". Philander Deming (1829-1915) grew up in upstate New York. He became a lawyer, a newspaper reporter, and eventually was official stenographer of the Supreme Court of New York, having demonstrated there the value, using shorthand, of verbatim reporting. In his spare time, he wrote for periodical publication "short stories and sketches depicting scenes and the life of the people in the Adirondacks and in the Valley of the Hudson" (DAB, v.5). These "unambitious stories, which, even when touched with melancholy, are gracious and comforting" (National Cyclopedia of American Biography, v.8), were eventually collected in "Adirondack Stories" (1880) and "Tompkins and Other Folks" (1885). One sheet, folded to make four pages, the letter on page 1, and Deming's remarks on p. 3. Folded for mailing, old mounting sticker adhesions, else Fine.
