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
Fishkill April 4 [6 - PM?] 1956 N.Y.
