TitleLetter from Gustav Fritsch, Roonstrasse 10, Berlin, to Charles Vernon Boys
Date24 November 1896
DescriptionFritsch is pleased that Boys valued the token of esteem bestowed upon him. He is amused by the printed scrap sent by Boys, which he has seen already. He speculates that his lecture must have been sent to America by telegraph in order for the notice to have come out so quickly. The first version was accompanied by a letter from a Chicago editor asking for details of the boy Vernon. If Boys does any further photography, Fritsch would like to learn of it.
