This is a scanned version of the original document in the Abernethy Manuscripts Collection at Middlebury College.




328 East 42 Street February 11, 1927

Dear Miss Bates

I believe there is something in the accumulated wisdom of the world about better late than never, but I'm not sure that it always works. It's a long time, in one way of looking at it, since Christmas, and your remembrance, along with your brother's able poem (I have told you before he is an able poet) should have been acknowledged long before this. Many thanks, all the same, - I am sorry for your sister and hope sincerely that she is not suffering. Does her condition alter your plans for going abroad together?

Yours always sincerely

E.A. Robinson
