    Augustus Saint-Gaudens Typed Letter Signed "Augustus Saint-Gaudens." One page, 7.25" x 8.75"(sight), Windsor [Vermont], February 21, 1906, matted to an overall size of 12" x 10.5". To Mr. Kuntz, this letter of introduction reads, in full:

    "I thank you very much for your valuable and prompt assistance on the Franklin medal. My own illness which confines me to my bed prevents my attending to it in person, but I wish to introduce to you Mr. Henry Hering, the bearer of this letter, who will act for me and whatever he decides as best in the matter I should like to have followed."

    The medal to which he refers is the Benjamin Franklin Bicentennial Medal. Saint-Gaudens had been diagnosed with cancer in 1900. He died the year after the writing of this letter.
