Also included is a letter, 1901 June 19, from Charles E. Lauriat, of the Boston Booksellers & Importers of that name, to A.R. Whittier, Jr., identifying Whittier's recent purchase, The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table, as the "presentation copy" which Holmes made to his mother. Jeannette L. Gilder, Sarah H.
