Letters from Sunnyside and Spain

Excerpt

Some of these letters have appeared in The Yale Review. These are now reprinted, substantially unchanged, with other letters, to make available in book form the most important personal correspondence of IRVING between the years 1840 and 1845. (The letters of the second part of this volume are now in process of translation by Señor José de la Peña, of Seville, for publication in Spain.) No attempt has been made, as in the two recently published notebooks of IRVING (ϒale University Press, 1927), to document fully the many allusive passages or to explain in detail the significance in IRVING'S career of places, persons, or events. Such study will be found later in a complete biography of IRVING. The emphasis here, save for brief interpretations of important episodes, is upon an exact reproduction of the original manuscripts, now in the ϒale University Library. The letters here stand asIRVING wrote them, excepting minor changes in spelling and punctuation.
