John Kendrick Bangs (1862-1922) handwritten letter signed, 8 X 10, on "The Waldorf-Astoria" letterhead, New York, Sep. 30, 1900, letter regarding work in progress on children's serials, by American author, humorist, editor (Life, Harper's Bazaar, Puck, etc.) and satirist. At this time he is still at Harper & Brothers but also selling his writing elsewhere. In part: "My dear Davidson: I have three childrens serials in hand, all of them a little more than half done. I will send you portions...of each tomorrow. Please excuse my delay in replying to your note of inquiry...." He then adds a postscript: "Hold Henderson to stiff figures on my stuff", probably referring to payment for his work. Usual letter folds and age toning, otherwise in fine condition.
