Church,” two pages on two adjoining sheets, 5 x 7.75, New York Athletic Club letterhead, no date, with the first page featuring a wonderful sketch of a bear with a picnic basket and holding a concerning letter. Written to his cousin, in full: "'The' blow almost killed father when I got Mrs. Godone's letter. I had just packed a basket with the finest brand of champagne and the choicest Delmonico Tenderloins and was anticipating such a nice time—such a blow. Will I ever get up courage to go down there again—I don't know. Will you come up Sunday morning." A brief postscript: "Love to Miss page—kind regards to Mrs. Godone." In fine condition.
