Description: 2 pages on personal stationery, 10.5 x 8 inches, Pointe-a-Pic, Canada, July 10, 1917. Signed "Wm. H. Taft" as professor of law at Yale, regarding a fundraising campaign for the university and mentioning the recent funeral of William H. Moody, associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. In part: "...Of course this legacy of $1,000,000 by Oliver Payne is great, but it may take away some of the enthusiasm for giving which I hope to arouse through the loss that Yale has to sustain from the war...Men can not control the time when they will die, and Moody's life was such a tragedy that I felt he was entitled to the poor tribute of my attendance, when the family requested it..." Usual folds plus a faint diagonal crease; small tears in the top margin; small stain on page 2. Very good(-) condition.

Dear Argosy - you've made my day - my order (Netherlands at War, 1940-1945) arrived on my doorstep this morning unheralded and very, very welcome. My sisters and I are Dutch immigrants in New Zealand and we all lived through that war 60 plus years ago as young kids. We had occasion to share what we remembered recently - and now you've supplied the book. I can't tell you what this means... - Dorothea B.
