Title: ALs to John A. Overs
26th. November 1840.
Dear Mr. Overs.
Any time on Sunday week the Sixth of December, between eleven and half past one, I shall be glad to see you.
I have gone through your two profiles, and marked them in pencil here and there. The Postilion is much the better of the Two. I am sorry to say that I have not had time to go again through that weightier story, and fear I must reserve myself for the piece you will bring with you – which I am curious to see.
I am glad you are hearty with Beaumont and Fletcher - They are very good company. It will take you a long time to get through the two volumes, which are of a huge thickness and closely printed. Don’t write about them, for I fancy it rather spoils the pleasure.
Always Faithfully Yours
Mr. J. A. Overs.
