HUNTER, Rachel. Letitia (1801)
Correspondence, Journals, and Memoirs:
Letter from Longman & Co to Thomas Hutchinson.
18 Mar 1813.
[Longman & Co have 450 unsold copies of ‘Palmerstones Letters’
on hand, having sold 300. They will pay the balance on the work by
the end of the year and are planning to readvertise the work in the
summer.] // We feel obliged by your suggestion respecting ‘Letitia’,
but as we are very doubtful of the success of a reprint of that work
at this time, notwithstanding the alterations you mention, we would
rather decline engaging in the speculation.
