ARNOLD (Matthew, 1822-1888, Poet)

Fine Autograph Letter Signed to Mrs Bruce telling her that they "have just returned home, and I lose no time in sending you the promised photographs. I have often thought of Brynderwyn and its inhabitants and my very pleasant visit, I hope Miss Bruce is stronger, and that you do not cough. I can heartily wish you encouraged to pass your winter at home, for I suspect the climate is too cold for you. Tell Mr Bruce that on the Wye I persevered and caught a grilse, but it was out of condition, no one, where I was, had been doing any better. But I saw the Upper Wye, one of the most beautiful of streams and I have seen the Usk and the view from your house towards the Blorenge and its brothers and that is something to do and to remember, even though one catches no salmon. My morning walk and afternoon drive with Mr Bruce will live in my recollection for a long while ...", 3 sides 8vo., Pains Hill Cottage, Cobham, 23rd October very slight damage in bottom right hand corner, slightly effecting the signature

ARNOLD (Matthew, 1822-1888, Poet)

Autograph Letter Signed to Mr Dunn telling him that “the Dean of Canterbury called my attention to Mr Bayne’s article, and after reading it I said to him pretty much what I have said to you. Probably the vehement praise of Mr Swinburne, whom I do not know and which astonished me as much as any one, made critics look out for signs, in my writings, of a crusade against religion. Such a crusade I have never had any wish for, though no one feels more strongly than I do how much which to the mass of our religionists seems certain and stable in the popular religion, is in fact transitory and precarious...”, 2 sides 8vo., The Athenaeum Club headed paper, 15th November
