Novelist George Meredith (1828-1909) writes his friend George Gissing (1857-1903), acknowledging his latest book, and asking about Gissing's health, reading (in part):"The title of your present abode indicates the open air cure. Let me know, if you can find time, how it affects you, & whether you are strengthened to work, as I trust you are, for a clear way is open to you now, & only the fair state of health is wanted for you to take your place among our best."A touching solicitous letter from the great elder author, himself no stranger to controversy, to the ill-starred but critically acclaimed Gissing.
