|Augustus Saint-Gaudens to Mr. Kennard discussing an inscription with Kennard
|15 July 1892
|Saint-Gaudens, Augustus (1848-1907)
|Saint-Gaudens, a noted Gilded Age sculptor, discusses an inscription with Kennard (possibly Martin P. Kennard, a Boston abolitionist and political reformer). States that the inscription, designated for a Boston monument honoring Robert Gould Shaw, is too complicated. Expresses hope that he can persuade John Murray Forbes, a Boston philanthropist and chairman of the Shaw monument committee, to endorse a simpler inscription. Very fragile with several torn creases.
