Please note: I definitely feel the salutation, the date and the signature are genuine. Please note the salutation, the date and the signature are darker.
It is quite possible that the body of the letter is a form letter that Harman later filled in with name/date & signature when he wished. This great piece has 2 horizontal folds, a small (4) fold on the bottom left corner and some light wear all of which do not affect the fine appearance/quality of the piece.
