Praising the work of a fellow Scotsman
Description                           Estimate: $1,000+          

ALS signed “R. L. S.,” one page, 4.25 x 4, no date. Letter to Alexander Ireland, in full: “Did I ever tell you with how great an interest I had read your reminiscences of Carlyle and Mrs. C.? If not, it was tenfold ungrateful. I have not often read anything so convincing; I believe I felt both of them more nearly in your paper than anywhere else.” Professionally inlaid into a slightly larger sheet. In fine condition, with a small repaired tear to right edge. Ireland was a Scottish journalist and noted friend of literary figures like Leigh Hunt, Thomas Carlyle, and Ralph Waldo Emerson, the latter of whom Ireland wrote a biography of in 1882. An excellent letter connecting two important figures of Scottish literature. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
