Description: Edwin Wilbur Rice (1831-1929), author, editor and biblical scholar, wrote this letter of 1927 to a "Dr. Kellogg" about his state of health. He writes that his "physical condition is not quite equal to the weariness of 260 miles trip" and that he has been advised to rest. Rice signed the bottom of the letter and scrawled his initials twice on the verso after each of his postscripts. One of these postscripts he apologizes: "My eyes are blurred, so I do not see very well and often write crooked lines."

Rice wrote numerous works, most notably: “The Sunday School Movement 1780-1917…”. At the time of the writing of this letter Rice was already 96 years old.
