MANUSCRIPT: Rosenbach 1170/17 (4). Ink. Dated: Sunday Evening. Unpublished, except for sentences 3-6 in the first paragraph which were published in Whicher, This Was a Poet (1938), 44.
This letter follows the letter written in March (no. 81) and replies to an answer to it recently received. The opening echoes that moment in David Copperfield when David sits in church and imagines the preacher talking about Dora (chapter 26). Jane's father had been dead for two years. The "Mr Humphrey" here mentioned is Leonard Humphrey.
