TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS) on Benedict Arnold

Kennebunk Beach, ME: 2 June 1938. Letter. One-page TYPED LETTER SIGNED to a Mrs. Woodruff on author's personal 8-1/2" x 11" stationery, @450 words with one sentence added in ink by Roberts. In part: "To understand Arnold, you must put yourself in his position." Roberts then makes an extensive argument supporting Arnold's actions. "Arnold was a soldier and an able leader. He joined the British in order to put an end to the rebellion -- exactly as some Southerners joined the Northern army in order to put an end to the rebellion.... I think your only mistake is to think that there were no patriots in the American Revolution except in the Continental army. More Americans fought as Loyalists than ever fought as rebels." Folds from mailing; light staining in margins. Very Good. Item #020982
