LAID IN IS AN ALS FROM THE AUTHOR TO THE ILLUSTRATOR, EDWIN MEGARGEE, dated November 10, 1938: “I should have written you long before this to tell you how very much I like your illustrations for “Martha Doyle”. With no photographs to help, you have seized imaginary models & made them so like the real originals that I would think you had drawn Martha Doyle & Banbury, for instance, from the life. I am proud to be in the same book with you and thank you very heartily for your splendid colaboration [sic]. Sincerely yours, Richard Danielson”.
