Tennyson, Alfred Tennyson, Baron, 1809-1892. Correspondence of Tennyson, 1868-1881.

Correspondence of Tennyson, 1868-1881.

In a letter, 1868 April 24, Tennyson writes to Emily Tennyson reporting on the ceremony of laying the foundation stone for Aldworth, the Tennyson's summer residence. Architect James Thomas Knowles is mentioned as are Sir John Simeon, James Bertrand Payne and William Frederick Pollock. A copy in Emily Tennyson's hand of the first four pages of an undated letter from the Princess Royal (Victoria) to Tennyson praises his poetry, particularly "Idylls of the King." A copy of a letter from Tennyson to Knowles [1872 November 16] requests him to make certain that some corrections are made to a text being published by Isbister & Moss. There is also a letter (copy?) from Paul éCernây, a Czech admirer, 1881 June 12.
