Autograph Letter, Signed, to Samuel G. Blythe]
London 1900 - Two pages, in ink, on two panels of folded quarto sheet of letterhead (30, Wellington Court, Albert Gate). Folded for mailing, else near fine. To Samuel G. Blythe (1868-1947), then editor of the BUFFALO ENQUIRER: "Objections? Indeed no. On the contrary I shall be glad. I shall now lay for the young man who called the other day, & who seemed to know a great many things -- & to lack delicacy in some little degree: for, while smoking my bad cigars & warming himself at my good fire he suddenly up & said, without any humane & softening preparations for the remark, that my Christian Science article had cost the Cosmopolitan 10,000 subscribers. He made me feel pretty bad, but I will transfer that sensation to him, now, when I catch him. And I will be sarcastic, & tell him Mr. Walker wants to lose another 10,000 & knows by harsh experience how to go about it. With my kindest regards to Mr. Walker, & best wishes to you & him & the magazine ." Signed: "Sincerely Yours S.L. Clemens." Clemens refers to his article in the October 1899 issue of COSMOPOLITAN, "Christian Science and the Book of Mrs. Eddy," and to either J.B. Walker (owner) or E.D. Walker (editor) of the periodical at the time, and may have been writing Blythe in response to a request for reprint permissions for Clemens' then controversial article.
