Letter from Edward North to B.W. Austin, March 16, 1886
Letter from Edward North (Hamilton College class of 1841, Professor of Greek), to B.W. Austin, March 16, 1886, thanking him for an honor announced by the Northwestern Literary and Historical Society (but see https://transcription.si.edu/project/6834, which states that Benjamin W. Austin of Liberia "assembled his collection [of autographs] by deceptive methods, for instance 'making them [people] believe that they were being honored with a membership in non-existent scholarly societies, such as the Northwestern Literary and Historical Society, or the Trinity Historical Society in Texas'").
