2 autograph letters signed (Rt. Graves"), 3pp, oblong 8vo, Kentish Town and n.p., 4 and 21 August 1843. To an illegible recipient, asking for the address of Mr. Linman of Liverpool, and assuring him: "I have recd the Cheque for 20 pounds quite safe for which I feel greatly oblgd. The little mistake was from a lament in the note of my brother Francis. . . ." The second letter is addressed to Mr. Linman, thanking him for proofs which Graves has received, and replying "As to the plate of the Bible it is continually progressing in hope of obtaining the approval of all -- The portrait of the individual you have done me the honor to wish for I shall have great pleasure in forwarding. . . . " Remains of prior mounting on versos; light toning and soiling; one page unevenly trimmed. In good condition, despite the defects noted.
