About This Item

This noted Chicago attorney and socialite was the nephew or renowned architect Daniel Burnham and the husband of influential American Impressionist artist Anita Willets-Burnham (1880-1958). ALS, 1p, 6½" X 9½", Winnetka, IL, 4 July 1939. Addressed to David C. Hannah. Very good. Faint folds and mild bit of wear, but boldly penned in black ink. Returns (not present!) "a dollar for the one you were kind enough to lend me the other day" and sends (also not included) a self-published book, "a complimentary copy of some of my Kiddish Rhymes -- you may have seen some of them before...." Interestingly, the street address Burnham pens at top -- "1407 Tower Road" -- was one of the oldest houses in this toney suburb north of Chicago, a circa 1820 log cabin his wife found in 1914, purchased and moved to this location, transforming it into a home and artist's studio (today owned by the Winnetka Historical Society).
