From the Bart Auerbach Collection. 14 pages, small 8vo (6 ¾ × 5 ½ inches), in blue ink on both sides of seven sheets of his personal stationery with his name and address printed in blue on each sheet; the sheets with a horizontal fold, but in fine condition.
Benet begins his letter with six lines of verse on the March weather in New York. He goes on to write about friends he has seen and the activities of his family (mainly his children). At one point he mentions a friend coming to visit with his daughter, who is a student at Vassar. He continues: "..I haven't seen Bill [his brother William Rose Benet] for a week for so but I hear he plans to go South when he can get away ... Lolly [his sister Laura] tells me that you may be coming back to the Farm House soon [from the hospital]…I've had quite a bit of editorial work to do, but have started another story and hope it will go reasonably well..." A charming family letter. (BA). Item #409309
