Abstract:

The papers consist of the autograph manuscripts for "An unfinished poem" (story), "A father's letter to his son," "Pall Mall St.," an untitled poem beginning "The autumn leaves is falling ...," an untitled account of the first money he ever earned and a visit to a circus, and "The autobiography of a justice of the peace," twenty-two letters from Nye chiefly re his writing: an autobiographical sketch, "An unfinished poem," his willingness to write for Samuel S. McClure's syndicate if payment is sufficient, his need for copyright protection, his desire to interview James Whitcomb Riley, "The Cadi," and his readiness to write for Richard Watson Gilder again. Other subjects include Riley's success at an author's reading, Richard Wagner's music, Nye's personal life, travel plans, and lectures and speeches. Also, one letter, 1900 November 13, from "Doe" to "My Dear Henry," deals with a request for an old Nye letter.

There are also three pen and ink drawings by Nye, including two self-portraits one of which is a caricature, and six photographs of him, one inscribed to James Burton Pond.

Correspondents include B.G. Brown, Robert William Chambers, Will M. Clemens, John R. Clements, Sara Jane Lippincott (Grace Greenwood), Frank Hatton, Mr. Kemble, James Newton Matthews, S.S. McClure, Walter Hugh McDougal, Leon Meare, and May Smillie.
