No date, on mourning stationery. No salutation, but probably the same correspondent as above. Thanking her for an unspecified gift, and very appreciative of her correspondent's friendship. "If I put my hand out in the dark, I feel that yours is there. You never fail in anything that I need. This letter was companion to another, no longer in our possession, from Isabella Gardner to Margaret Cushing Osgood, consoling her on the recent death of her husband, Dr. Hamilton Osgood. Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840-1924) was a Boston philanthropist. There have been at least three biographies of her; also published were the letters of Henry James to her and her correspondence with Bernard Berenson. She built and endowed a museum to house her personal art and other cultural artifact collection - the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston -which includes the famous portrait by John Singer Sargent of Mrs. Osgoods daughter Gretchen Osgood Warren and grand-daughter Rachel. Two conjugate leaves, three pages, paper remains from mounting on p.4. Very Good.
