Autograph letter signed : place not specified, to J.W. Parker, undated [ca. 1852].

Sending the first number of his novel Hypatia, and discussing its publication. Asking for the proofs "as soon as possible," noting "I cannot tell what the style looks like, unless I see it in print."

Noting "It is all hypocrisy to talk of Petronius & yet be ashamed to confess to Fanny Hill or Harriet Wilson, [who] are chaste & clean compared with him."
