1945 printing. Reprinted from the Bulletin of the New York Public Library of December, 1944 and January, 1945. A handbook on letter-writing that excludes examples of historical, literary, and specialized (such as business) correspondence in favor of a general letter-writer for the "average" person. Introduction covers the history of the letter-writer handbook, dating back 1568. It credits much of its history to Katherine Gee Hornbeak's The Complete Letter Writing in English, 1568 – 1800. The text features examples of letters on general and specific topics (ex: A Father to his Daughter, Refusing his Consent to an Early Marriage). It also includes a bibliography called Preliminary Check List of American Letter-Writers, 1698-1943. The Schultz Archive copy is roughly the complete 54 page text.
