Letter to Elbert Hubbard II about his father Elbert Hubbard, the founder of the Roycroft artisan community.

His—was a very great mind and very constructive and in reading him I always felt I was in good company for he had the faculty of creating ambition and the desire to do things worth while—to forget selfishness—and to give out to others. For this reason I am happy and proud to his associated with Him and that the opportunity has come where 'all who run may read' for it will bring happiness into their lives—and make the more worthwhile American citizens."
