Dated Concord, August 29, 1895, agreeing to give a lecture, "The Meaning and Value of Historical Societies", asking if his preferred date of September 20 will be suitable, and "It will give me great pleasure to spend thenight at the hospitable home where I have passed many delightful summer days in years gone". This lecture was given at Topsfield on September 20, but the secretary of the Topsfield Historical Society gives the speaker as Ezra Hines, and reports that Putnam spoke in December - likely he misremebered (The Historical Collections of the Topsfield Hist. Soc., v.1, 1895, 2nd ed.). Two conjugate leaves, 2 pp., mounted to a slightly larger piece of blue paper. A Fine letter.
