    [And:] Arthur Train. TLS. February 10, 1914. [And:] Arthur Train. TLS. February 17, 1914. Both to George Haven Putnam, publisher at G.P. Putnam's Sons, who participated in various social and civic causes, and followed his father's efforts with relation to copyright protection for authors. He organized in 1887 the American Publisher's Copyright League, and it is in this capacity that Arthur Train is first seeking his assistance, and then thanking him for his quick action. Both letters on Arthur C. Train's legal letterhead, 27 William Street, New York City, Representing the Authors League of America and the Society of Authors in London. Both letters with typical folds, tears at corners with some loss, puncture holes in one letter along with pencil markings. Very good.
