    Harriet Beecher Stowe Autograph Letter Signed "HB Stowe". Two pages of a bifolium, 5.25" x 8", undated. A letter to Mr. and Mrs. I.T. Fritos:

    "My Dear Friends, Allow me to introduce to you my friend Mr. Louis - an Englishman who has adopted our country from conviction - I want him to know you, & you him. He is a friend of Tom Stephens and I. Stuart Miles but I am sure you might like him for himself - & in this confidence I am that more happy to be the means of making your acquaintance."

    Harriet Beecher Stowe, reform-minded novelist, is best remembered for penning Uncle Tom's Cabin, a fictional indictment of slavery that further polarized an already antagonistic North and South.

    Condition: Toned at edges, with usual mail folds. Some paper loss on verso, likely due to removal from mounting, small amount of remnants from mounting still present.
