Scope and Content

From Ralph W. Wescott, Chairman of the Walt Whitman Foundation based at Whitman's last home in Mickle Street, Camden, New Jersey. He refers to some Whitman material Minnie has sent him, and suggests trying the British Museum or a local library for her "'Bolton College' collection"; if this is unsuccessful he will accept the material. He sends Minnie a pamphlet he has prepared using some of her material; describes Whitman day celebrations at the birthplace on Long Island; and praises Wallace's 1920 essay on 'Walt Whitman and the World Crisis'. 1186/5/21/3 is a Christmas card addressed to his Whitman friends in Bolton.
