GEORGE ROSE ("ARTHUR SKETCHLEY")
He submits an article for publication, wishing to see the proofs because "one or two mistakes owing no doubt to my scrawl" had appeared in his previous article.
Autograph Letter signed: "George Rose", 2 pages (front and verso), 4½x7. 96 Gloucester Place, Portman Square [London], 1878 January 12. Addressed in his hand on accompanying envelope to "Kent Esq./Weekly Register/Catherine St./Strand" [London]. In full: "I send you herewith an article on the Count of Chambord which I think will contrast pleasingly with 'Il Re Gratuoso'. I should like to see a proof as one or two mistakes owing no doubt to my scrawl occurred in my article last week. I am yours very truly". George Rose (1817-1882), who wrote under the pen name "Arthur Sketchley" tutored sons of aristocratic Catholic Englishman before embarking on a writing career. He wrote a play and two novels, but was best known for a series of books by a "Mrs. Brown" (Mrs. Brown in London, Mrs. Brown in the Highlands, etc.). As "Mrs. Brown," a semi-literate, working-class Englishwoman, he wrote humorous commentaries on contemporary issues. He made a round the world tour (1879-1880) doing readings of Mrs. Brown monologues. One horizontal fold. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
