MS-700: Katharine Wright Haskell Papers


This letter, sent from the Park Hotel in Oberlin, Ohio, was written on June 13, 1925, but sent on the 14th, after her previous letter on the 13th. In this letter, Katharine Wright writes to Henry Haskell expressing how, despite her feelings for Henry - and his feelings for her - she does not feel like she could separate herself from Orville, both due to her emotional attachment to him and the responsibility she has taken on throughout his life.
