Dated Cambridge, July 22, 1847. To Henry Vose of Springfield, Mass., declining an invitation because of a prior obligation, and suggesting an alternative visit. Henry Vose was a prominent lawyer who had been a classmate of Henry David Thoreau at Harvard (Class of 1837). Of the 328 Thoreau letters known to have survived, the first was to Vose in 1836, asking if he wanted to room together for their senior year. Vose and Thoreau were schoolboys together at the Concord Academy. James Walker (1794-1874) was a Unitarian minister, edited the Christian Examiner, and was president of Harvard from 1853-1864. One sheet folded, two pages, address, postmark, and sealing wax remains on the conjugate leaf. A Fine letter.
