Desirable AQS on an off-white 7.75 x 10 sheet, signed and inscribed at the bottom, “Julia Ward Howe, Inscribed for William J. Bok, Brooklyn, N. Y., Boston, Mass., November 17th 1881.” Howe pens a stanza of her famous work, ‘The Battle Hymn of the Republic.’ In full: “In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born / across the sea, / With a glory in his bosom that transfigures / you and me; / As he died to make men holy, let us die / to make men free, / While God is marching on.” Below, she adds: “Composed in 1860.” She also pens an ANS on the reverse of the second integral page, signed “J. W. H.,” in full: “Thanks for your kind letter. I send the enclosed with pleasure.” A clipping of the text of this verse is also affixed to the reverse. In fine condition, with a crease to the upper left corner. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
