2 autograph letters signed, 7pp, 8vo, Nutfield, Red Hill, and "Mrs. Stevenson's", Dartmouth Place, Blackheath [?], 29 Oct. n.y., 3 June n.y. The first letter, to "My dear Sir" sends thanks on behalf of the author's mother, apparently for a financial gift: ". . . My beloved mother greatly wished to write to you herself to express with her own hand the comfort it has given her. But she is in much suffering today and the power fails." In the second letter, to Mr. Watkins, Charlesworth sends greetings and presents a book [no longer present]. Minor glue stain and remains of prior mounting on versos; one small chip to second letter, else very good.

Maria Louisa Charlesworth (1819-1880); English author of religious books. Her best-selling Ministering Children, published in 1854, had a vast circulation. (Item ID: 6976)
