ALS signed “C. G. Gordon,” one black-bordered page both sides, 5.25 x 8, no date. Letter to Gerald Graham, in part: “I hope Mrs. Graham is well also the godson & the others. Do you remember the great event the christening. I don’t often hear of you, but I hope you like the place. Happiness is not dependent on eternals, but on the state of our mind with respect to the one great question. It must be always presenting itself till answered and there is only one way to answer it, and that is irrespective of our wants and is accorded to our needs. It is a great comfort to feel though man may be far separated on the earth that this is for him and his fellow a common centre at which their spirits may meet at least once a day. Things look dark everywhere but this is what we must expect, this world is not our resting place.” Gordon adds a short postscript. In fine condition, with small tears along edges and writing showing through from opposing sides. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
