SAMUEL LOVER
A letter from the writer lamenting about House Agents and slippery applicants
Autograph letter signed: "Samuel Lover", in black ink, 1 page, 4½x5¼. In full: "Very long correspondence to go through this day all about House Agents (damn them) and slippery applicants (skin them) and so the last minute for posting letters is arrived and I must "Shut up", Yours, Dear Friend, Very sincerely". Samuel Lover (1797-1868) was an Irish novelist, songwriter and painter. Being privately educated in his native Ireland, Lover desired to work in the arts, and fled his father's stockbroking business to take residence in London, England. He took up many practices, but excelled in painting, mostly painting portraits and miniatures. In addition to painting, he took up writing and compoing, most notably writing "Rosy O'More" (1826), which was also developed into a novel and play. His other works include a successful novel titled Handy Andy (1842). As he grew older, his eyesight began to fail and he abandoned painting to focus on writing and entertaining, reading his writings with much popularity in Great Britian and the United States. Irregularly cut. Surface creases. Normal mailing folds. Bottom and left edge frayed. Corners slightly worn. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
