Autograph letter signed ("Barry St. Leger"), 1 1/2 pp, 4to, Bristol, 8 September, n.y., with integral address leaf. To the English poet and anthologist Alaric A. Watts, thanking him for sending a copy of "Tales of All Nations", explaining why it took so long to reach him, and replying:" I should have been extremely happy to have given you any assistance in my power for the 'Literary Souvenir' -- I fear, however, it is now too late. Should you think otherwise, however, let me know -- and I will send you something. . . ." With a biographical note about St. Leger in an unidentified contemporary hand in the bottom margin. Mounted to another sheet; small smudge to one word (still legible); lightly soiled and worn; with a hole and a few tears from the removal of the wax seal (text just barely affected); else good.
