Addressed to noted Lincoln/Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates (1914-93). Near fine. Friendly note rejoining the New York Civil War Round Table, of which Gates was officer, and commenting: "I don't get into New York too often, but I'm looking forward to attending some of your 1957 meetings. Recently I've been tied up with some chores that have kept my nose to the grindstone. I hope to get over the hump before very long." Boldly signed in full.
