Title:
Horace Greeley, New York, autograph letter signed to R. W. Griswold, 20 February 1841
Description:
Estimates Griswold's abilities: "You won't do for a politician, yet you are rather tall in your own department of Literature." Complains about the inexperience of [Henry Jarvis] Raymond, and the rest of the New Yorker staff. The great beasts [Brother Jonathan and the New World] murder me in the way of circulation. Discusses the affairs of Epes [Sargent], who has left the New World. Asks about the coming Philadelphia Trade-Sale. Recommends his friend W. Falconer to translate BĂ©ranger.
