Unbound. Autograph Letter Signed. Framed with an albumen photograph of Longfellow, and with the original envelope addressed to "Master Harry Hammond[?]" of Cincinnati. Unexamined out of the frame, the letter appears near fine, the photograph appears to be trimmed from a cabinet card. Longfellow responds to Birthday wishes:
"Cambridge, March 20, 1879. Dear Master Harry, I have just received your letter of remembrance, and congratulations on my birthday. I thank you; and may you live as long, and be congratulated in the same way. Yours truly, Henry W. Longfellow."
