Description: This chatty letter reads in full: “Dear Larry: This is a gentlemanly introduction to George Rothwell Brown of Washington, whose novels you probably have stuck away somewhere on your commodious shelves. He is one of those knighted souls who has never had the pleasure of a business association with authors’ agents; and I have told him that if he could enter into an alliance with you, he would certainly be spiritually elevated, if not financially benefited. I will allow him to do the rest. Nov having visited your fair but somewhat Jewish city for some time, I have naturally been deprived of the pleasure of seeing you; but I hope to do that little thing before being shipped to any other odd corners of the globe. With best wishes for a Merry Christmas and as happy a New Year as is possible to such a Prohibition enthusiast as yourself, I am, as ever, Faithfully yours, Kenneth L. Roberts.”

Kenneth Roberts (1885-1957) is best remembered for his historical novels, such as Arundell (1929), Northwest Passage (1937), etc., but he also wrote about foods and recipes he remembered as a boy growing up in Maine.
