Please inspect photos. For your consideration a signed letter from Julia Ward Howe to the editor of National Magazine. It is in poor to fair condition long ago repaired with tape, the acids in which are causing the paper to brown.

In comparison to other know signatures of Julia Ward Howe, along with the mention of her daughter Maud (a respected author in her own right, along with that of Maud's sister, Laura E.

the late controversy aroused

you its favorable consid-

Julia Ward Howe

your kindness with regards

to Miss Maken of ?
