ALS, 3pp, 4½" X 7", Highgate, England, 1863 March 20. Addressed to C. Bathurst Woodman, grandson of Charles Bathurst (apprentice and later publisher with Benjamin Motte, Jonathan Swift and Alexander Pope's publisher). Near fine. Intriguingly cryptic contents about a scroll of some sort: "It was very thoughtful of you to mention Whittington's tome, but I was already aware of it not being the original one. With respect to Mr Hume and the scroll, I am sorry that you had not time to [ ? ] home with him when he would be in, or he studies, it seems, at University College, and would be about in the day. I am sure he will have much pleasure any time that you are in Town, in showing the scroll to you, but I very much doubt whether he would sell it. At all events your purpose, if you become the purchase, of restoring it to the [ ? ] is very honorable to you." Interesting and worthy of further research. N° de ref. de la librería 27214
