Letter (10 1/4" x 7 3/4") to Gilbert Dobbs discussing several problems and thanking him for problems received. Compares the problems to others by Pauly and Loyd. Signed by White.

Giblert Dobbs (1867-1941) had composed an astonishing number of 2,500 problems, great numbers of them very charming and attractive pieces. He loved the simpler combinations of pure or model mates in three-move form, and turned out literally hundreds of examples, which one could always counted upon to be well worth the solving. Dobbs went on to become a minister in Georgia. (American Chess Bulletin: 1941)

Alain Campbell White was an American problem composer and chess patron. For 32 years, from 1905 to 1936, he published the Christmas series of chess problems. He did more than any other player to promote worldwide interest in chess problems.
