Nice sentiment and signature by the most popular American poet of his time

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1807–1882.  American poet.  Autograph Sentiment Signed, Yours truly / Henry W. Longfellow on a 2¼” x 4½” piece of paper, dated in Longfellow’s hand, 1876.

Longfellow was the most popular American poet of his time.  His works include Paul Revere’s Ride, The Song of Hiawatha, and Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie.  In 1863, he published Tales of a Wayside Inn, a collection of poems in which people at the Wayside Inn in Sudbury, Massachusetts, each tell a story in the form of a poem.  Longfellow was also the first American to translate Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Longfellow has signed on a small piece of laid paper typical of the period.  The piece is nicely centered on the paper, which makes it perfect for framing for display.  Longfellow’s brown ink signature is a bit light but nevertheless is easily legible.  The piece is in very fine condition.
