“We do not expect an elaborate oration”
Description                           Estimate: $800+          

ALS signed “J. L. Chamberlain,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 5 x 8, January 10, 1883. Written from Bowdoin College, a letter to Reverend F. E. Clark, in part: “The desire to bring the good ministers of the State into relations with our college as much as possible, & also make them more acquainted with the college than they are likely to become by the ordinary course of things. We therefore cordially invite you to come to us on the day observed as a day of prayer for colleges—the last of the month—and give an address before our students. This may be as familiar as you choose. We do not expect an elaborate oration but only a plain practical address or sermon.” In fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
