Dodgson confirms to Macmillan that he "did not write 'Woman's Mission'"

ALS signed “C. L. Dodgson,” one page, 8 x 5, October 31, 1888. Handwritten letter to Alexander MacMillan, the cofounder of Macmillan Publishers, in full: "The only answer I can give is that I did not write 'Woman's Mission.' Is it 'published by your firm'? And if so, who did write it?" Dodgson adds a brief postscript: "Thanks for 'Athaneum' notice." In fine condition, with intersecting folds and light creasing, none of which affect the handwriting and its bold ink.
