Letter, 192-

Handwritten and signed letter, composed on "New York Journal, W.R. Hearst" stationary, and dated 26 June of an unspecified year. Abbott writes to a "Mr. Walker," perhaps the American editor, John Brisben Walker (1847-1931). Abbott invites Walker to meet "a friend of mine, Clarence S. Darrow," at a luncheon when Walker is next in New York City. Abbot also comments on authors. "Hawthorne on the Indian plague is grimly fascinating, but Le Gallienne has not outdone Fitz Gerald."
