Letters

Scope and Content

From William Broadhurst of Culcheth in Bolton [another member of the Bolton Whitman Fellowship]. Topics covered include: Wallace's manuscript [probably his 'Visits to Walt Whitman in 1891'] which he praises, commenting on its "holy" atmosphere and its success in capturing Whitman's soul; his anticipation of its reception by readers and critics; his admiration for Wallace's spiritual superiority; comments from others that the manuscript is not sufficiently objective, which Broadhurst rejects.

1186/1/12/1 includes envelope; both letters are written in pencil.
