Letters : to James Daniel Hearn, 1890 and undated.


Letters : to James Daniel Hearn, 1890 and undated.

Letters concerning James' introduction as Lafcadio's lost brother, the two having been separated when James was an infant. The letters also contain a history of the Hearns' mother, and father Charles Hearn, and information about Lafcadio and his life. All but one of the letters are undated and only one gives location, but contextual information suggests that at least two were written before Lafcadio went to Japan (1889) and at least two were written after his arrival in Japan.
