Abstract:

This collection consists of one handwritten letter and a handwritten manuscript. The eleven page letter is dated October 6, 1854 and was sent from Mrs. E. Attersoll to Mary Crofts Sidgwick in Rugby, Warwickshire. Mrs. Attersoll relates the current events, which include news from her niece's husband, who is fighting in Sevastopol during the Crimean War (1854-1856); the planning of a Roman Catholic school by Robert Isaac Wilberforce (1802-1857) and his brother, Henry William Wilberforce (1807-1873); and frictions between the Wilberforce brothers and the local Anglican Rector of Westport.

The manuscript is entitled "A Grandmother's Tales" and was published in MacMillan's Magazine in 1898. It was written by Mrs. William Sidgwick, wife of William Carr Sidgwick, and recounts her youth in early Victorian London and brief experiences with great figures of nineteenth-century Britain. In many cases these include mere glimpses of prominent personalities: the state visit of Nicolas-Jean de Dieu Soult, Minister of War under King Louis-Philippe (1830-1848) of France; Italian lessons from Napoleon's former private secretary, the Marchese di Moscati; and a piano concert by composer Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847). Mrs. Sidgwick also presents insightful descriptions of the poet Matthew Arnold (1822-1888) falling in love; the poet Robert Browning (1812-1889) relating his adventures in Florence with fellow writer Walter Savage Landor (1775-1864); the funeral of Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington (1769-1852); and the debate regarding the theory of evolution sponsored by the British Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in 1860 between Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895) and Samuel Wilberforce (1805-1873), then Bishop of Oxford. Of interest to researchers will be Mrs. Sidgwick's recounting of mannerisms and customs prevalent in early Victorian society, as well as her descriptions of public ceremonies. The manuscript is twenty-seven pages, and includes marks and alterations made before publication.
