About this Item

This young Chicago journalist married renowned Chicago attorney Clarence Darrow in 1904 (his second wife), remaining with him until his death in 1938. Inscription and signature on the inner panel of a three-panel 3" X 5" buff stock printed card. Near fine. Outer panel features small grey-tone graphic showing sunlight streaming through a church's stained glass windows and the phrase "With / Sincere Thanks" along the bottom, while inner panel bears printed message "Your sympathy / and kindly / thought will always / be held in / grateful remembrance" -- below which she pens in black ink "by your appreciative, / sorrowing / (Mrs. C.) Ruby Darrow." She has slightly smudged the words "sorrowing" and "Mrs." A small but moving memento sent in response to a condolence message sent her by future Lincoln/Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93) upon the death of her husband in 1938. Unusual and uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 40772
