Autograph letter signed ("Moy Thomas", in purple ink) 2 1/2pp, 8vo, The Garden House, Clement's Inn, W.C. 25 November, 1875. To L.W. Friend, proposing unspecified works for publication: "I am under a promise to write a serial for Tillotson . . . who published Miss Braddon's last story in various newspapers under a system . . . by which you no doubt have heard of. We have even agreed upon the price. No time, however, is fixed and I daresay he would not be able to start so early as your date. If so I should feel myself quite at liberty to make terms with you. I have more than one scheme for what would I think make a powerful story maintaining interest from week to week. . . . " Some soiling and a few small spots; annotated in ink in an unidentified contemporary hand: "Letters on SAT: Not posted". In good condition overall.
