Brief two-stanza poem titled "Beyond," which goes as follows: "When all my little worldly tasks are done, / And life is through, / Shall I, my love, lie down in sleep at last / To dream with you? / Or shall I find, when you and I shall rest / In peace supreme, / That death is Life but of a larger plan, / And Life the dream?" Boldly signed at the conclusion. Second, a TNS, 1p, 7¼" X 10¼", New York, NY, 1923 February 2. Addressed to Dr. Albert Johannsen. Near fine. On "Popular Radio" letterhead, listing him as editor, Banning thanks this University of Chicago professor for "my unpardonable delay in responding more promptly to your flattering suggestion of over a month ago" and transmits this typed poem. Boldly signed. Johannsen authored "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (University of Oklahoma Press, 1950), the definitive reference work and bibliography on the subject.
