Cambridge near Boston
March 10, 1866.
My Dear Sir,
May I so far trust in the magnetism of literary sympathy as to present the bearer, W. Charles G. Falls, a student in our University, who is obliged to leave his studies for a while, on account of his health.
I should not like to have / him pass through Copenhagen without calling to pay is respects to you.
He brings you my last volume of Poems, which I beg you accept as a mark of sincere regard and admiration.
I remain, my Dear Sir,
Henry W. Longfellow
Hans Christian Andersen Esq.
