Wholesale Lumber Merchants Albany, N.Y. 8vo. Two intimate letters from Dean Sage, member of the prominent Albany firm of lumber merchants founded by his father H.W. Sage. The first is to his prospective sister-in-law Jennie (Jane, née Curtin, 1847-1893), after learning of her engagement to his brother Will. He welcomes her to the family, and writes "I think I have never longed so much to meet a person I have never seen." The second letter is to his brother Will, (William Henry Sage, 1844-1924), recalling their great love for each other from boyhood to the present "in spite of our frequent quarrels." Dean Sage (1841-1902) is remembered as author of a great late-nineteenth century sporting book, The Ristigouche and Its Salmon Fishing (1888), and as one of the great American angling collectors.
