Copy letter

Scope and Content

From Sixsmith to Hamer, thanking him for his letter, but regretting the absence of any assurance from Hamer that Mrs Sprague's gift will be accurately recorded and that the Library will send her their thanks. He intends to write to Mrs [Anne] Traubel [widow of Horace Traubel, who was a close friend of Whitman and one of his literary executors] to tell her the true story.
