Description: 1 page on his personal medical stationery, 7 x 6 inches, Rutherford, New Jersey, November 22, 1953. Written four days after he suffered a debilitating stroke, severely affecting his thought process, in full: "Thank you for your letter of Nov. 16, very wellcome (sic). The mechanical church bells across the street are playing an adaption from the hymn in Beethoven's 9th symphony as I write this and McCarthy still rules in Washington. Lincoln was a man whom we could do well with in the White House today. I am glad you found my autobiography worth while and especially glad that In THE American Grain is still consulted from the Los Angeles library book shelves. Best luck." One horizontal fold; diagonal crease in the upper right corner; two small faint stains in the side margins. Very good(-) condition.

Comments: American poet and pediatrician closely associated with modernism.

Dear Folks, It's good to see you on the World's Book Map. To Mr. Cohen and the member of his family I owe a great thank you for all the lessons "how to hold back straight". To all the members of the stuff -- a great thank you for help and assistance in all periods of a busy days and weekends. And to the good young Argosy, a great thank you for being there back in the 1970's & 1980! - V. Kharets
