Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Autograph letter signed, 60 Westbourne Park Villas, "Friday" n.d. From the Victorian novelist [to her publisher William Tinsley (though not so indicated on the letter; the letter is from a group of his papers)] concerning the publication of her novel Loyal: "I have been promised reviews in prominent places in the following papers. . . . If you will be so good as to forward copies of Loyal to each they will be put in at once. I have already given away two of my own copies to reviewers. . . . All my friends tell me they have searched in vain for any advertisement of my novel in the daily papers. I hear it from all sides. I think it would pay to advertise it more. I think it may have been neglected through your absence from business. . . . I shall not write another novel, till I see whether this answers. I have written a short story. If you think that at any future time you will have a place for it, I will send it to you, that your reader may look at it to see whether it would suit you?"
