Abstract:

Consists of fifteen letters of Anna Eliza Bray.

There is one letter to "Mr. Planche" where she discusses her book FRITZ AND FRITZ-FORD, and five letters to Edward Blore discussing her bad health, poor eyesight, and problems she was having with the illustrator for her novel. There are six letters to "Mr. Cunningham" (1846-1851), possibly her publisher, where she discusses additions or revisions to the text of her manuscripts. Included is a lengthy letter sent August 5, 1852, from Tavistock, to "Mr. Balmanno" expressing worries over her own health and that of Mr. Bray, and discussing logistical details for the delivery of a package of engravings by Bray's father-in-law, the English artist Thomas Stothard. Also included is a letter to the post office reformer Sir Francis Freeling, also from Tavistock, dated March 25, 1833, about the difficulties of sending her manuscripts to poet Robert Southey for her book about the history of the area. Southey was in Cumberland and Bray was in Devon, and postage between the two was not only expensive but also very time consuming. She asks Freeling if he would send her manuscripts with his personal mail for free using his "powerful frank."
