Frances Mary Peard, 18351922
The letter refers to Peard's Donna Teresa, which was published by Macmillan in 1899, after it bought Bentley's. She is guarded about suggesting her alternative titles, having had a bad experience with her Career of Claudia. She discusses the length of Donna Teresa in relation to Temple Bar and asks Bentley for his offer to purchase the story, including American and Colonial rights.
