16mo, 4 pp. 64 lines. Text clear and complete. Hutton was a friend of both de Vere and his correspondent, and 'this will always remain a link between us; for no one who ever knew him can forget him; & no one who remembers him can ever cease to honour him'. Hutton lived on for a month after de Vere 'was staying here last, & during that time I must have seen him some five or six times in his beautiful home on the banks of the Thames - It was a touching thing to see his patience, & the devotion to him of his niece.' Hopes they may meet within the next two weeks, and perhaps 'take a drive together up to that beautiful Hampstead, & have a chat there with the Baron von Hugel'. The last of the six volumes of a new edition of his poems will be published in a fortnight, with many of the poems 'considerably reduced in length', and therefore 'strengthened'. He resents 'having to pay the Macmillans about £60 for bringing out' each of the volumes. In a postscript states that he has 'just returned from Aldworth' where he has been 'passing a few days with the Tennysons'. Hallam Tennyson's biography of his father has been 'an unprecedented success'. N° de ref. de la librería 11150
