1901 March 29. Jacob [A.] Riis ALS to [Elgin R. L.] Gould; New York City, New York.
"No, I might have known you didn't care. I merely meant to let you know that I at least am not a party to the effort to glorify in all your deeds. And the opportunity will come to set the perspective right." "I am glad you liked the 'auto'. Truly, I like to write it, and I shudder at what is coming. It is easy to write of the old days. The new are all a muddle to me. But that riddle will be solved as so many others, when it has to be." Has saved up several hundred dollars and would like to buy some of Gould's shares.
