July 18, 1977 Mr. Donald Gallup Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library Yale University New Haven, Connecticut 06520 Dear Don: Thank you for your recent note. I want to ask you, while I am thinking about it, whether it is important for you to have envelopes as well as the letters which I am planning to donate to you. I am referring to correspondence and other documentary material relating to Stieglitz, the Photo-Secession, the Henri group, and the early American modernist painters. I am still getting interesting letters, including one recent from Beaumont Newhall, describing exactly how and when Ansel Adams took the photograph of Stieglitz which appears on the dust Jacket of my book. I have no idea whether the envelopes for these letters have any significance for you and whether I should keep them. I would appreciate it if you would let me know. When I receive these letters I write, in pencil, the date of receipt if they are undated and also indicate, in brackets, the last name of the signer, if that is not included in the letter. I will be Interested in hearing from you. With best regards. Sincerely, William I. Homer Chairman WIH:nz
