Weiss' Lectures : New York, January 15th, 1873. Rev. John Weiss. Dear Sir: Having heard from discerning persons of the interest excited in the literary circles of New England by your course of six lectures on "The characters of Shakespeare," and feeling sure that many people in New York would consider it a privilege to hear them, we desire that they may have the opportunity ... yours respectfully, W.C. Bryant ... [et al.] : Boston, January 18th, 1873. Gentlemen: Your invitation, calling me to deliver my new course of lectures in New York is quite unexpected, but too flattering to refuse. I name the evenings of February 7th, 10th, 14th, 20th, 22d, and 24th for their delivery ... I am very truly yours, J. Weiss ... these lectures will be given in Robinson Hall, no. 18 East 16th Street ... tickets for sale here.
