Letters of Francis Bennoch [manuscript] 1884-88.

In letters to Henry Oscar Houghton, Sir Theodore Martin, Benjamin Franklin Stevens? and especially to George Henry Holden Bennoch discusses his relationship with Nathaniel Hawthorne when the author visited England and relates anecdotes about their tour through the country with Henry Arthur Bright. Most of his letters, however, concern a photograph of Hawthorne supposedly taken secretly and later lost. Bennoch finds the photograph and clears Julian Hawthorne from a charge of taking it. In other letters Bennoch discusses a painting of Hawthorne which he plans to place at Bowdoin College. There is a reference to E. P. Peabody in a letter to George H. Holden 1885 December 3.
