Autograph Letter, signed, to publisher John Murray ("My dear Sir")
Paris, Rue Richelieu no. 89, 1825. 1 page, 14 lines. 8vo. Some soiling and toning, else very good. 1 page, 14 lines. 8vo. Irving to Murray. In the midst of his busy social calendar, Irving writes his publisher in London, reading (in part): "My dear Sir, My brother will hand you this letter. He is on a tour for his health & may pass a few days in London. … I enclose a draft on Mr. Samuel Williams for fourteen Pounds received from the Messrs. Galignani for the copy of Gambas work …" Irving's Journals for 3 March 1825 note "letters this morn'g to Jones, Sullivan, Murray … Called at Storrow's - drew on Mr. Williams for £200 - drew on him in fav[our] of Murray for fourteen pounds". In January, Irving had been in discussion, on behalf of Murray, with French libraire and publisher Galignani concerning 'A Narrative of Lord Byron's Journey to Greece' by Count Gamba, published by Murray. The book was reprinted by Galignani ("who agrees to give a guinea a sheet for the copy of Gamba's work", 25 January). Irving here conveys the payment to Murray.
