About this Item

A moving letter of condolence on the death White's first long-time editor at Harper & Brothers. ".with all our many times together, it was always too short and too little for me, and now the thought of being deprived of any more such times is almost unbearable. It is, of course, one thing to be a good publisher and another to be a good friend and to have both in one man meant everything to me. I guess my affection for Gene must have had something to do with his agreeable vices -- I liked to drink at noon, thus adding to the normal pleasures of the grape the extra satisfaction of squandering the long afternoon and avoiding work. Gene was always the perfect partner in such crime and I can not spare him to any truant officer.". Bookseller Inventory # 29100
