Autograph letter signed ("M. Betham-Edwards"), 3pp, 8vo, Villa Julia, Hastings, 16 June, n.y. To an unidentified woman, declining to join the "Bilbliotheque des Terres": ". . . on principle I am averse to all unisexual associations. I hold that men & women shd work together. I am also sorry to say that I am unable to subscribe to any new society. What little I can give is given to societies for the protection of animals. . . . I would be pleased to send some copies of my books. . . . I wd also endeavor to get other authors to do the same. . . ." Somewhat soiled on recto and (blank) verso of integral leaf; else very good.

Matilda Betham-Edwards (1836-1919); prolific English novelist, writer of children's books. (Item ID: 6785)
