To an unidentified editor or publisher, informing him: "The manuscript of my story was despatched to you by the Cunard Steamer of the 2nd. . . . I propose that its title be 'Gold and Dross' -- I also send you six poems. -- You need not trouble to return any of these, if you will kindly just give me the names of those you do not use, that they may be sent elsewhere. . . ." Soiled and toned; thin areas along edge or blank verso from removal of prior mounting; with a few other insignificant marginal tears and some overall wear. Still, in good condition despite the defects noted.
