An American poet and novelist, he is best known for the Spoon River Anthology (1915). In it, Masters tells the story of a small town through a series of free-verse monologue epitaphs. He also wrote Mitch Miller, The Nuptial Flight and a biography of Abraham Lincoln, Lincoln the Man. An autograph letter signed E. Masters to Mrs. He wrote in pencil on unlined paper: Dear Mrs. Smith – Your letter is very cordial – and I want to come your way at Christmas. There is just this thing: I have been postponing a trip to New York. It may happen that it will fall then, unless I can go soon; as I must stay there a number of weeks. But this can be done anyway – I want to give happiness to the children there – not in my name but in Lillian’s – and will you write me saying what I can do? And if so how many girls and boys are there? Help me in this. Another thing: can you conceive of something. I can send Lillian that would give her delight? What as a child, a little girl, a twenty-year old did she want and never have? Or what is there now? I can’t think of a thing. Tell me – and let me get this off in time for her Christmas. So you understand I may be with you; and why it is if I’m not. The letter has light folds and is in fine condition.
