2 autograph letters signed, 3pp, 8vo, Hotel Kursaal, 9 September 1894; and, The Trovachs Hotel, 29 August 1895. Both letters are to Grant Reid, in the first thanking him "for the most kind & flattering notice of my 'Voces Populi' which you have contributed to the Northern Figaro. In answer to your question my books have never been issued in a uniform edition as they have been published by Messrs. Smith & Elder, Longmans, Bradbury & Agnew & Arrowsmith respectively.''; and, "I found your letter & enclosure on my arrival yesterday & have to thank you most sincerely for so very kind & laudatory a notice of my 'Lyre & Lancet.' I am sure you will understand me when I tell you that I make it a rule never to forward books of mine personally to any paper for review, but I have no doubt that Messrs. Smith & Elder will send you a copy of 'The Talking Horse'. . . . And if you care to possess a copy of any other book of mine I shall have much pleasure in sending you one with my signature after I return to town. . . .'' In very good condition. (Item ID: 5270)
