SYDNEY MORGAN
The author apologizes for not being able to meet someone as they passed through her town, and says that she would like to meet up with them tomorrow as early as possible as she has already made dining arrangements for that afternoon
Autograph letter signed: "Sydney Morgan", 4x5½. June 3, 1849. In part: "...I should be so sorry you left town without my seeing you! Could you not take her with me tomorrow [illegible] as early as you please - I am unfortunately [illegible] to dine at two oclock!". Ango-Irish novelist Sydney Morgan (1781-1859) took London by storm with The Wild Irish Girl (1806), a paean of praise to Ireland. She became the companion of the Marquess of Abercorn, who in 1812 arranged her marriage to a surgeon, Sir Thomas Charles Morgan. As a married woman she continued to produce verses, essays and novels, including O'Donnel (1814) - considered her best novel - and France (1817), a breezy, journalistic survey of French society and politics which drew criticism for its praise of the French revolution. Paper clipping affixed to right margin. Pencil notes (unknown hand). Some areas of letter slightly smeared, but clearly legible. Multiple folds. Light surface creases. Toned. Stain at top left margin of front. Otherwise, fine condition.
