Eliza Cook, Greenhithe, Kent, Eng., autograph letter signed to Frances Sargent (Locke), 25 February 1844

Item Information

Title:
Eliza Cook, Greenhithe, Kent, Eng., autograph letter signed to Frances Sargent (Locke), 25 February 1844
Description:
Asks for family news, and regrets that she cannot visit America. Her works have sold well but Bogue, her publisher has acted unfairly in regard to the American edition. Would Mr. Osgood make inquiries of the Langleys? Colburn will publish her next work. Writes of several friends. An "old recollection" keeps her from making a prudent marriage. Thinks Dickens's American Notes very inferior, but his [Christmas] Carol is a "rare bit." Asks Mrs. Osgood to "blow up" [George Pope?] Morris for not answering her letter.
