November 8 Tuesday – John W. Sanborn wrote to Sam sending his book, Distinguished Authors Whom I have Known.
I have just finished another book, and I send you a copy because it is a very funny book and I know you can appreciate it. It is intended as the opening up of a royal road to the Latin Language. It is, like your Scrap Book “a great moral work.” Like you, I want to economize the profanity of this country, especially the under-breath curses of the school room. How sweet to labor for the same great end! [MTP]. Note: not in Gribben.
