FLETCHER, Grenville. Rosalviva (1824)
Correspondence, Journals, and Memoirs:
Letter from Grenville Fletcher to Cosmo Orme.
22 Dec 1823.
Mr Fletcher’s compts to Mr Orme & will he have the goodness
to signify whether he has had an opportunity of perusing the MSS of
‘Rosalviva or the Demon Dwarf’. Mr. F. would
not have been thus pressing save that he has some literary occupations
upon the carpet, & remains as yet undetermined which to complete
in the first instance.

Notes: This letter appears on the verso of a draft letter to the Revd
William Kirby. The letter to Kirby appears to bear no relation to
that about Rosalviva. Fletcher’s letter is addressed
from 10 Somers Place, New Road. In the event Rosalviva was
not published by Longman, but by Matthew Iley (London) in 1824.
