MS New York Public Library, De Coursey Fales Collection/2

My dear Sir,

Many thanks for the three critiques on Mlle Mori which I hope to shew Miss Roberts.

I think there is a good deal of one sidedness in the Literary Gazette- as though written by a person who saw from only one point of view.

I cannot judge whether the characters are too English but I fully believe Miss Roberts had authority for some of the things here represented as impossible and I wonder whether the writer has any grounds for the ‘simply not true’, that the hero and heroine were unlikely to receive alms because not Roman Catholics.

yours with thanks
