JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL.
WITH A PREFACE
AUTHOR OF “ TOM BROWN'S SCHOOL-DAYS.”
Reprinted, with the Author's Sanction, from the
Fourth American Edition.
Edition of the “Biglow Papers” is issued with the express sanction of the Author, granted by letter, from which the following is an extract :
14th September, 1859.
- I think it would be well for you to announce that you are to publish an Authorized Edition of the ‘Biglow PAPERS;' for I have just received a letter from Mr. who tells me that a Mr. was thinking of an edition, and wished him to edit it. Any such undertaking will be entirely against my will, and I take it for granted that Mr. only formed the plan in ignorance of your intention.
many thanks, very truly yours,
