Vailima Letters - Vol. 2

By Robert Louis Stevenson; Sidney Colvin | Go to book overview

XXXIX

Vailima, May 18 th, 1894.

MY DEAR COLVIN, -- Your proposals for the Edinburgh edition are entirely to my mind. About the Amateur Emigrant, it shall go to you by this mail well slashed. If you like to slash some more on your own account, I give you permission. 'T is not a great work; but since it goes to make up the two first volumes as proposed, I presume it has not been written in vain.1 -- Miscellanies. I see with some alarm the proposal to print Juvenilia, does it not seem to you taking myself a little too much as Grandfather William? I am certainly not so young as I once was -- a lady took occasion to remind me of the fact no later

1894 May

____________________
1
The suppressed first part of the Amateur Emigrant, written in San Francisco in 1879, which it was proposed now to condense and to some extent recast for the Edinburgh Edition.
