Abstract: One autograph letter written and signed by American novelist, George Washington Cable, to "Mr. Ridenig," writing, "Nevermind the typewritten copy of my MSS.

Cable reminisces about his "boyhood," recounting having met a number of boy and girl slaves, and remarks, "The growing African mind is worth writing a few lives about in playful earnest and kind good faith."
