PORTER, Anna Maria. Don Sebastian (1809)
Correspondence, Journals, and Memoirs:
Letter from Owen Rees to Anna Maria Porter.
19 Jan 1814.
Mr Brown has put your letter into my hands to answer as to your intended
novel [The Recluse of Norway (EN2 1814: 46)], respecting which
I have consulted with my partners. For Don Sebastian we gave you Fifty
Guineas P volume; and, on referring to the account of that work, we
find that the utmost we could propose for a new work from your pen
would be the same sum per volume. When we last took stock we had about
100 copies remaining of Don Sebastian.
