12mo, 4 pp. Bifolium. 51 lines. Text clear and complete. Good, on aged paper. Chatty and spirited letter. 'I propose myself the honour and pleasure (seldom indeed, save in common parlance!) of paying you a visit, - to present you with a copy of "Westminster Abbey"', which has 'emerged from the press in the orthodox three volumes'. Does not want to give him 'an excuse for not flashing your eye through it'. Describes Manby as 'the "fastest man" living, though in a sense entirely opposed (I hope and trust!) to the slang one!' 'You asked me once "What on earth could induce a rational being to write plays?" - Let us see if you will dare to repeat the question, putting novels for plays, when you see me entering at the windows of your aerial apartment, with a weird sister, mounted on broomsticks, from the top of Westminster Abbey!' L'Estrange's identity is unclear, but the anonymous novel 'Westminster Abbey; or, The Days of the Reformation', attributed to Emma Robinson, was published by the London publisher John Mortimer in 1854.
