Dear Mr. Lenthall -

         Thank you for your letter which I do not consider in any way an effrontery as you put it.  I only wish that I could grant your request + furnish you with the photographs you ask for.  Unfortunately I have with me here only family photographs which I would not care to give or loan; I am sure you will understand my feelings.  Most of the material relating to my family I have had to put into storage + would be impossible to get at. -  I would indeed enjoy hearing you lecture on April 9th which will be my birthday! -  Again I am so sorry not to be able to help you out in this matter.
                                                                                                      Sincerely yours
                                                                                                   Edwin Booth Grossman
