NO MONEY FROM THE FOUNDER OF LAMPOON FOR THE CASTLE. Edward Sandford Martin was brought on as Life's first literary editor. He was recent Harvard graduate and a founder of the Harvard Lampoon. He also wrote an editorial column for Scribner's Magazine, Harper's Weekly (1893-1913), and for Harper's Monthly (1920-1935). This letter to Mr. P.H. Lombard is a rejection of a request for money for the Harvard Lampoon Building (or "The Lampoon Castle") which is an historic building at 44 Bow Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts and is home to the Harvard Lampoon. It was built in 1909 by Edmund M. Wheelwright and added to the National Historic Register in 1978 Reading in part: "I am pretty tired, pretty poor, rather peevish & abounding much more in chances to pay out monrey than in money to pay out..." Docketed above with note about building to Farwell by Lombard.
