To the Reverend J. Parke Bachman in Brooklyn, thanking him for praise of his 1923 play "Saint Joan" and repeating his claim not to have romanticized the heroine: "I am glad St. Joan enlivened your voyage ... But really the praise must be to her. I cannot too often repeat that I have been only her reporter - fortunately one with sense enough to know that she needed no romantic beleaguerings from any playwright." - With insignificant stains and pinch folds.
