Autograph Letter Signed to W. H. ALLCHIN (Sir William Henry, 1846-1912, Physician) saying that he has "been travelling about a good deal lately, hence the delay in replying to your most kind letter ... You were indeed most kind in the care you took of the poor man Seward - and I know that the poor fellow during his life time - and his family then, and since, have all felt how deeply indebted they were to you for your great kindness. I have seen this evening the Brother of the poor fellow who died. He asked me to convey to you his own thanks, and the thanks of the family for your goodness to his Brother.

Pair of Autograph Letters Signed, the first to Mrs Merivale and the second to her husband the very Reverend Charles MERIVALE (1808-1893, Historian, from 1863 Dean of Ely) starting "This is a begging letter, and I who know by experience how kind the Dean is, spare him, and trouble you. I hear, from Mr Venables, what a charming book is to be read - the History of the Merivale Family - and I want to renew my old friendship with that family and read about their sayings & doings. Mr Venables told me that it was one of the most interesting books he had ever read. I will take tender care of the book if you will kindly lend me a copy ...", 1 side 8vo., 21st July, the second says that she has "read the book with the greatest interest, and with some self-reproach - I did not value your father as he deserved. How well I remember visiting in Woburn Place. What merry dances we used to have - I remember so well leaving one morning about two o'clock - one of the young men (sons of the house) & Sir George Rose, helping me into a Hackney Coach - and our all three tumbling down in the snow. How wise you were not to go to India - and how kind & good your father was about this ... How pleasant it would be to assemble together, the Merivales, the Denmans - and all those who remember 'those days that are no more. Time has thinned the ranks. What a splendid passage that is where your father describes Irving - How well one good man knows another ...", 2 sides 8vo., both from 19 Albert Hall Mansions, Kensington Gore, 25th July
