About this Item

This is a 4-1/2 inch by 7 inch letter with four pages - 3 pages written, from Charles Eliot Norton, author of "The New Life of Dante", to John Chester Adams who was eventually Professor of English at Yale University. The letter contains about 29 lines with four to five words per line. Excerpt: "I am glad to be associated in your memory, through Dante, with your attainment of the chief blessing which life can afford. I am not sorry that your happiness should throw back its light over our readings of the "New Life" and "The Divine Comedy", and should be their best interpreter.". The letter is dated 28 May, 1900 and is on the stationary of the "Dominion Line - S.S. New England". The paper is very clean with 2 small closed tears at the folds' edges. In the original envelope.
