Mrs. Alexander 1825-1902
In her letter to George Bentley Mrs. Alexander thanks
him for the present of some books and admires The Sun-Maid (by
Maria M. Grant). She asks what has happened to the proofs for her Heritage
of Langdale, before noting: "You will I fear think me whimsical
but I should now like to correct my proofs myself."
In her letter to Richard Bentley she notes that the copyright
of Ralph Wilton's Weird has now reverted to her, and wonders whether
he would be interested in republishing it and on what terms. Her last
line, "I shd like still to sail under the old colours," refers
to the continued use of her pseudonym.
