Letter, dated 1891:

G.A. Connor

Dear Sir, Your favor of June 6 at hand. 
 
Would say in reply, my Specimen's from Zaner, Madarasz and others at hand I hereby invite you to call and examine them as you are a lover of art.

Found in "The Divine Lady" by E. Barrington. Published by Grosset and Dunlap, 1925.
 
 
 
I believe the letter is referring to Charles Paxton Zaner and Louis Madarasz, famed for their handwriting and calligraphy.
