Excerpt

PROFESSOR JOSLIN, who, as our readers are doubtless aware, is engaged in writing the life of Mrs. Aubyn, asks us to state that he will be greatly indebted "to any of the famous novelist's friends who will furnish him "with information concerning the period previous to her com"ing to England. Mrs. Aubyn had so few intimate friends, "and consequently so few regular correspondents, that letters "will be of special value. Professor Joslin's address is 10 Au"gusta Gardens, Kensington, and he begs us to say that he "will promptly return any documents entrusted to him."
