I have just seen your
noble blast in the Bookman.
It is easy reading for the
gratulated object of your

Hempstead,

Saint John (then called

Parrtown) by his father

Richard the Loyalist, and
are of the original grantees

Saint John River, and a

Long Island nearby, though
not on the island of course.

Also for the “ Outlook ” and
[Lyman Abbott] ,” read “ The Independent”,
and Doctor
William Hayes Ward, a
distinguished old scholar
and a true lover of poetry.

Also The Chap. Book was
started in
Cambridge, where
young
Stone &
Kimball were

just completing their
education at
Harvard.
I was with it until they
took it to
Chicago - where it
died, naturally!

Best wishes
Bliss Carman
