William Davis Gallagher, Washington, DC., autograph letter signed to R. W. Griswold, 4 May 1852
Is pleased by the sympathetic feeling between Griswold and [T. H.] Shreve. Regrets Hine's attack on Alice [Cary]. Praises her Lyra [New York 1852], and Griswold's vindication of Miss Cary in the New York Mirror. Griswold's article on American female writers in the Westminster [Review] "raised a storm."
