Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Fragmentary autograph note. London, no date, 1 p., endorsed on verso with signature of Thackeray. Giving his address (13 Young St, Kensington Square), apparently as a dinner invitation, as below it is written "dinner tomorrow Sunday Mr. Hill Q.C. 6 o'clock." Probably to Matthew Davenport Hill, who was a barrister, but it is not clear if he ever took silk. Thackeray and his family moved to the house in Young St. in June 1846 and they lived there until May 1854.


Arranged alphabetically by correspondent.
