A noted Lincoln collector writes to a colleague

Typed Letter Signed, on imprinted 8 x 10 stationery as Illinois Governor, to fellow Lincoln authority Emanuel Hertz, also Jewish, the brother of Chief Rabbi J.H. Hertz of England.


August 9, 1937. Honorable Emanuel Hertz, 141 Broadway, Borough of Manhattan, New York City, N.Y. Dear Emanuel: This acknowledges your letter of August sixth. I surely would like to see the photostats you mention. When you are out this way you can give me a ring and I shall be glad to talk to you about them or you can let me look at them by mailing them to me. I hope you are well and have the best of good luck. Sincerely, Henry Horner.


The letter has heavier, somewhat irregular toning at the upper right edge, and there are two horizontal folds.
