Autograph letter signed, 3pp, 4to, Exeter, 19 April 1816, with integral address leaf. To R. Baldwin Esq., submitting a manuscript: "These essays . . . were written with a view to publication, & have been inspected by various literary & religious friends . . . whose names are the highest sanction to a Kind of this earth. . . . The present papers . . . would make two decent volumes about the size for instance of Mrs. H. More's Practical Piety or Christian Morals. Perhaps you would put me into the best way of proceeding. . . ." Split (repaired with paper tape) along vertical center fold; torn in several spots (no loss of paper); remains of prior mounting; a bit browned and soiled.

Samuel Charles Wilks (1789-1872); English evangelical divine, friend of Hannah More, editor of the Christian Observer. (Item ID: 8818)
