Typed letter signed, to Arnold F. Gates, thanking him for birthday greetings and discussing his writing.New York: 1940 Stock Code: 137650
A friendly letter from the Libertarian and New York Times journalist to the noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar Arnold F. Gates. Hazlitt thanks him for his birthday greetings and discusses his projects for books:
"Successive projects for books seem to have been shot from under me both by work here at The Times and by a world situation which makes it seem unprofitable to write on some of them. I have in mind a small political book which I still hope to get to soon. Meanwhile, let me wish you the very best of luck on your novel script."
Hazlitt's Economics in one lesson, first published in 1942, was to prove a bestseller.
