TAYLOR, BAYARD. Two Autograph Letters Signed, to Margaret Stuyvesant Rutherfurd, granting permission for Mr. Potter to set to music his poem "Bedouin Song," observing that illustrators "are (of right) exceptional beings, and, like nervous cows, require to be tied up, hoof and horn, before they will allow their imaginative faculty to be milked," and declining an invitation to contribute a sketch. Together 4 pages, 8vo, the first a folded sheet; the second docketed on verso. Kennett Square, PA, 4 June 1865; [New York, circa 1865]
