One page letter, handwritten and signed by Elizabeth Akers Allen, who wrote under the pseudonym Florence Percy. Torn at both folds, with creasing and tears to extremities (very thin paper); one tear is clear through the autograph. It reads "Greenville, Hudson C. NJ August 14, 1893 Mr. H. M. Alden Editor Harper's Dear Sir The most unhappy luck has waited upon every article I have sent you for more than a year. There may be a possibility that it will 'turn' some day, and who knows what day? So I send again hoping for your decision before long...Very truly yours [signed[ Elizabeth Akers Allen." On the back is written in another hand in pencil "Rock Me To Sleep Before..."
