Edwin H. Abort
Of course, Philip's career was too brief for him to leave any of the monuments which go to make up fame among men, but he has left, evidently, in a great many hearts something which will help to make the men and women who come after him better for his life among them. I shall be glad to accumulate in your hands from time to time some suggestions and articles, perhaps, which will help carry out your purpose, and I am grateful to you for the kindness of your application and the interest which you show in one whom personally you could have known so little. Trusting that time may give me the pleasure, of meeting you personally, and hoping that you will never lose an opportunity of calling on me if you are in my neighborhood, as I shall certainly not if I am in yours, believe me,Very sincerely your friend,Edwin H.
