CATHARINE LONG
The British author of religious novels signs this letter to an acquaintance regarding her daughter
Autograph letter signed: "Catharine Long" in black ink. 2 pages. 3½x5¼ folded. April 6, 1867. Written to "Dear Mrs. Bateman" on letterhead of Landthorne Hatch, Farnham, Surrey. In full: "Your daughter was kind enough to say, before her marriage, that she would accept two of my little books as a remembrance. I ordered them to be arrayed in becoming bridal attire for her, and the people did not send them me in time. But now I have had them left in town, at 12 Dover Street, Piccadilly, and should you be passing that way, perhaps you would kindly ask for them. I directed them to you, thinking that would be best. I was not quite sure how I ought to write her name. Will you have the kindness to put it in for me? I should be much obliged. I hope you receive good accounts of her, and that she has had better weather for her tour than we have been favored with here. I am sure that you will ... feel glad to hear that Mr. Long is better than he was, and is able now to get out walking again a little. I hope you are all quite well. I beg my best compliments to Mr. Bateman, & remembrances to your daughter, and believe me, Dear Mrs. Bateman very sincerely yours". Catharine Long (1797-1867) English novelist and religious writer, born Catharine Walpole, the youngest daughter of Horatio Walpole, 2nd Earl of Orford. She engaged in much literary work, chiefly in the way of religious fiction, and published some pieces of sacred music. Long's first work, Sir Roland Ashton, a Tale of the Times published in 1844, was a religious novel directed against the tractarian movement. Long was known to reflect on contemporary concerns about the morality and aesthetics of the use of the novel form for religious subject matter. Toned. Corners rounded. Normal mailing folds. Adhesive residue on top of first page. Otherwise, fine condition.
