Lot 61: TLS, one page, 8.5 x 11, The Kansas City Star letterhead, September 3, 1918. Letter to E. Fred Eastman, in full: "I did not know that you were the author of 'Fear God in Your Own Village,' which I had read with profit. Now my dear sir, it is not possible for me to deal with the detailed principles of your plan, and this for the excellent reason that they are so important. You rightly say that we are still in the prophetic stage of rural social life and that we should pass to the stage of organization and action. I am in cordial sympathy with your purpose, but I should have to do nothing else but study the matter for several months without thinking of the war, if I were to give you a judgment worth having, on all the separate points." Intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature) with a tape-repaired tear to top edge, some toning along right edge, slight scattered creasing, and a missing upper left corner tip, otherwise fine condition. RR Auction's Fine Autographs & Artifacts Friday, 23rd October 2015 Estimate: $400-600
